I took the trek over the Sierra today, and found the formerly Philadelphian Philpug. As I suspected he was stranded near Donner Pass.
Snow was conspicuously absent on top of Donner Pass looking down at the infamous Donner Lake.
My iron horse for the day.
As I drove by the lake, I missed the best of the scantily clad scenery.
Pickings didn't look too slim at Donner Lake, but we had to go further to find Phil
As expected however, he turned up at the Start Haus in Truckee. Look at the poor guy, he's starving!
Things must be pretty desperate. Outside his whole quiver was on sale at fire-sale prices.
Also ran into Sierra Jim today fresh back from a 2-week backpacking tour in the Sierra. For some reason he managed to dodge the camera. Fun to visit with the guys at Start Haus and start thinking about the season to come. Welcome to the area Phil!
