Branko - PCT - Jul 25, 2012 - Day 89: Elk Lake
No snow.

Hundreds of little lakes and ponds, very cool. Tried to reach Elk Lake in time for food but it closed at 7pm.

Met first sobo thru hiker. He said it took him the whole day to do 15 miles from mile 1972 north because of the snow. I'm going to hit this section mid day tomorrow, not good. Also met 2 ladies trying to do or/wa section on horses. We passed each other maybe 7 times. Also met a guy called Eagle Eye, hope to catch him in the morning.

It was a day of reflections. Rest in peace, kiddo.
