A beautiful sunrise in Swarthout Canyon.
The trail climbed pretty much continuously all morning, gaining over 5000′
Pretty soon we were looking at snow covered peaks and even hiking through a couple small patches.
This is Bronco and Locomotive. They are from Boulder and left the day after me.
They hike so fast they are a blur!
We finished the day at a ski area. I don’t think they are giving the PCT the respect it deserves… surely it can’t be the “Easiest” way down.
Crammed in the back of a truck while hitching into Wrightwood, CA.
Carefully extricating from the truck.
Thanks to Katy and Todd for getting my package to me on time 🙂
Home for the night at the “Bear with Us” Cabin.
Wrightwood is very friendly to hikers and everything is just a short walk in town.
