On est parti de Guitar Lake...

Northern Strider - PCT - Jun 22, 2009 - Le Majestueux Wiithney! Point D'orgue Du Voyage
journee dediee a: Nous deux, Louis et Sylvie. On savoure le point d'exclamation du voyage!Nous faisons aujourd'hui un "detour" tres special, de 17 miles en dehors du PCT pour faire l'ascension du Mont Withney. C'est le plus haut sommet (14, 600 quelques pieds) des 48 etats contigus des Etats-Unis. Comme notre camp de base est a Guitar lake, a environ 11000 pieds d'altitude, nous pouvons grimper juste avec le necessaire d'une journee sur le dos. La journee est parfaite: presque pas de vent, soleil (evidemment!), pas froid et la neige est juste assez dure pour ne pas caler, sans etre glacee!
