1155 (Donner Pass) to 1137 (above 5 Lakes)
Last night Steph dropped off more food for me at Donner Pass and took me into Truckee for salad and ice cream (THANK YOU again Steph!). Then I camped by the trailhead. This morning, I continued southbound on my way to Carson Pass where I ended my first post-stress fracture section hike. A bit confusing to explain, but it allowed me to start back on easier terrain. If my foot continues to be well, after this I'll pick back up at Ebbetts Pass and go south to Tuolumne Meadows where I got off. Then I will have finished the southernmost 1197 miles of the PCT through Sierra City CA. After that, we'll see what happens. Anyway...
Absolutely stunning scenery of the Northern Sierra around Anderson Peak and Tinker Knob through the Granite Chief Wilderness. Different geology with lots more volcanic rocks and breathtaking views.
|Ah the views!|
