Day 4 of 6 of our HST Hike last month. One of most physically and mentally demanding days on the trail.I'm glad I spent the last few gym sessions before my trip walking on a treadmill with my pack and hiking boots.

Leg 4 (as tracked): Kern Hot Springs to Packer Camp || 8 miles || +3563, -470 || +3093 net elevation gain || 13 hours

Details and full photo gallery (25 photos) are posted here:

What's this? Some sort of stove/oven?
