Red’s Meadow and an Emergency Calorie Reinfusion

Emergency Calorie ReinfusionEarlier this week I went up to Red’s Meadow with Neil to resupply David. Red’s Meadow is a small oasis in the wilderness that has a pack station, campgrounds, a general store and a cafe. It’s a perfect place for hikers to grab a shower and something to eat other than dehydrated hiking meals and trail snacks. The food at the cafe is really good, even if you haven’t been on the trail for days. For the backpackers, it gives them what David likes to call “an emergency calorie reinfusion”. As you can see from the picture, David is enjoying ice cream, one of his all-time favorites. Their homemade pie is pretty good, too!
