Postholer - PCT - Jul 31, 2013 - What A Day
The day started pleasant enough with the passing of beautiful Rosary Lakes. Climbing up past the lakes I ran into Happy who I met at Crater Lake. He made an interesting statement about the weather and asked if I'd seen a weather report. 3 days ago nothing adverse was mentioned. But his prophetic statement manifested itself into thunder storms.

The mosquitoes have reached an insane level. They were just as bad in '02 in this section. 30+ miles of this to endure. I just need to hang on till tomorrow.

This section has dozens of small ponds and even some lakes. Mosquito paradise.

The above mentioned rain caused me to call it a day at 7:15 to avoid getting rained on. I needed time to set up my tent while it was dry. After the sun set the storms ceased and it's perfectly clear. More is forecast for tomorrow.

Hundreds of mosquitoes are outside wanting to get in. I need to pee. This could get ugly.

Nite.
