Three of us went camping at Kite Lake, and we were joined by four new friends. They were there to climb Mt. Democrat (elev. 14,148), and Jason and I planned to hike that in addition to Cameron (elev. 14,239, technically considered part of Lincoln), Lincoln (elev. 14,286), and Bross (elev. 14,172). All parties were successful.
The mountains were on fire. We were frustrated by the clouds because they were blocking the meteor shower. But then Jason woke us up around 1:30am when the sky had cleared. Amazing stars. No pictures though.
