Day 2 to Ruby Lake
Day 2: After breakfast, we will organize our gear and strike out up Rock Creek to Ruby Lake at just over 11,000 feet. Because of the initial high elevations, this first travel day is intentionally short to allow us to acclimate to the thin air and get comfortable with our packs and gear.  At first the gentle trail follows the natural moraines, but soon reveals 12,800-foot Mt. Starr and the headwall that becomes Mono Pass. We plan to arrive before lunch to get a good group campsite and explore the classic alpine lake and its surroundings. Total mileage is 2.5 miles, with an ascent of about 950 feet.
