DragonAnt - PCT - Jun 13, 2008 - Glen Pass
Many things have changed since I have left the trail a week ago: lots of snow has melted, deciduous trees have fresh green leaves, flowers are now open, the temperatures are higher and the mosquitoes are swarming. It feels like early summer and not like late winter anymore!
Though my legs need to get used to PCT hiking again :-) however, they carry now less weight; i have switched my heavy Bach to a lighter ULA.
First, we hiked the Kearsarge Pass trail back (7.4 miles, 2880 ft ascent, 1140 ft descent, about 3.5 hours). The lakes are now ice-free, still beautiful.
I carry again Tortillas and Peanut butter and it it for lunch together with cheese. Quite nice, an idea I copy from Sheik Olivier.
We were told to hike Glen Pass in the afternoon, because its north side is icy and very steep. So we took it very leisurely and were at the pass at 2pm. Awsome views, but in my opinion much too late. The snow was soft and we all postholed a lot.
Therfore, we decided to approach Pinchot Pass as close as possible. It was poast 8pm when Julian, Ninjo, Breeze and Cruiser and I decided to stay at woods Creek, 7 miles to the pass. In camp, we saw the alpenglow, a bright moon and a deer having dinner 20 yards away.
