August 28,1996 Wednesday, Alt, 4200 ft.

Up in the morning in Bishop CA. Arrived at Piute Lodge night before. I'm still remembered as the guy from Rhode Island. Jan, Su, and Hong-Nian posing by Route 168 heading west into the mountains. Had breakfast in Bishop, and back to finish packing at 10:30. Forest fires near Reno have caused severe haze in the valley, can hardly see the mountains.
