Adventure Duo - PCT - Jun 26, 2007 - Several Entries In One
so, I didn't have a pen during the Tuolumne Meadows to Sonora Pass section. I'm going to attempt to write here what I remember from those days...
we left the ford in Matterhorn Canyon and headed over Benson Pass, past Benson Lake and into mosquito zone. later, we went past Wright Lake and up another canyon to Dorothy Lake and Dorothy Lake Pass. This was a super easy day, though the mileage was still pretty substantial. the climb up to the pass was amazingly gentle, and it went alongside a river so it was nice and cool. we saw Stormin' Norman and Hell On Wheels along the way. we camped that night a few miles past the 1000 mile mark, which we built a sign for out of rocks. the bugs were terrible again, so we ate lunch in our tent. luckily there weren't any bears around so we didn't regret it. the next day, we packed up and headed out to Sonora Pass, 16 miles or so which we covered by about 1pm. it was another beautiful section, with views into Yosemite and Emigrant Basin from a ridgeline. we played a lot of 20 Questions to pass the time on the way up.
coming out at Sonora was bittersweet. George has decided to leave the trail, probably for good. walking down toward the road was the last bit of trail I'll be hiking with him on the PCT. I'm not sure what to do about the rest of this hike - go by myself, stop hiking and come home, find a new partner? too many options, and none of them are the one I want, which is to keep hiking with George.
anyways, we got a ride down to Bridgeport with a crazy old man and his dog. he dropped us off at a local restaurant. George ordered lunch while I tried to arrange things with my mother in Oakland and my grandparents at Ebbetts Pass. after eating, we got a ride to Markleeville, then another ride to Ebbetts Pass, where my grandfather came and picked us up. we went back to the cabin, had homemade lasagne for dinner, had a good soak in the hot tub and went to bed.
