Mono Creek Tributary to Lake Virginia
Distance: 27km Elevation Gain: 1,300m

In the morning I was ecstatic, no detour today!

Crossed the Mono Creek tributary and then Mono Creek itself, hiked up Big Horn Pass, Shout of Relief Pass and then on trail to the beautiful Lake Virginia.
Woke up in the morning to find the water levels in the Mono Creek tributary had significantly receded! Oh man ,I could cross safely now. I was elated!
Mono Creek was still too high at 6:30am but by 10:30am the waters in the creek were lower and safer. I held onto the log as I walked on the downstream side of it.
