Our last day on the TRT is a doosie – 19 miles packed with ridges, peaks, and localized storms all around.
We’ve noticed that bears seem to like chewing up the many plastic Tahoe Rim Trail signs, but this one takes the polymer cake.
After raucous lightning storms before dawn, the weather clears and rebuilds repeatedly throughout the day.
Our last peak is Relay peak, the highpoint of the TRT. The skies give us a kind of grand finale show of cloud dances and rainbows.
And with that we’re done! I feel happy and proud of our hike. Nothing left to do but beg a ride from Ann’s friend Jenna and watch the clouds while she comes to fetch us.
