Day 3: Heading into Lyell Canyon. A familiar site for me...from the back. About this time, the trail names were defined Gaz (James), Elle (Elliot), and Papa Lion (Ken) . Papa Lion was chasing Gazelles for 220 miles. This is not a typical position for me, but then again I was hiking with two 21 year-old, 6'4", 165 lb hiking studs!
