When I came back to the cabin expecting to find Sarah still sound asleep I was pleasantly surprised to see her enjoying her tea on the front porch. She too got to experience the moment.
We had a slow morning enjoying the views from the porch. A ranger we had spoken to a couple days before had warned us that it had been pretty warm lately in the Van Vleck Area and by 9 A.M the hot sun had already proven that to be true. I sure can’t complain about a sunny day, however, anything over 75 in the Sierras tends to drain my energy (especially in full sun).
We prepared a lunch and drove the short distance to the Tells Creek Trailhead where we set off to hike the Bassi Creek Loop.

After the hike and back at the cabin we enjoyed some brews and views from the front porch. The gorgeous meadow set out before us did not get old to look at.
Just before sunset, as swarms of mosquitoes came out, I set off to take some photos in the meadow while Sarah prepared dinner. Although there wasn’t a cloud in the sky, the light cast on Tells Peak changed dramatically.
