The High Sierras: Day 5

September 24, 2013

This day was pretty much anxious waiting and hoping.  I stayed in town where there was cell phone service, in case he tried to call while my parents spent the day at the trail head.  


I kept by the phone pretty much all day and rested.  Then around 7 PM my mom called & my brother had arrived back to the trail.  He looked scratched up but fine.  He had gotten lost on one of his first nights in and followed an animal trail.  His trips had all the ear marks of a spirit journey with hallucinations.  He also saw a bear -which looked him straight in the eyes and then walked away.  He used his wilderness survival class skills.  Eventually he found a bear trail which led him over the pass and to the lakes we had camped near.  However this was after we had left.  He then followed our same trail back.   

The footprints I found may have been his from his first night.  After that we all got cleaned up and went out for pizza.  It was amazing.
