Pacific Crest Trail Map

Snow Day

Wow! Most awesome day yet! Fantastic views, cool temps, snowy navigation challenges! I love the mountains! This is what I'm out here for. Well, that and the all you can eat diet! So anyways, I hiked up Devil's Slide Trail 2.5 miles to regain the PCT with Rockstar. Met Hansel and Gretel at the top going sobo. Tomato, Freebie, Snuffy and Steel-eye started off with us nobo. I also met Nick and John and hiked with them off and on today. Used Halfmile's waypoints and was very impressed with them for navigation on a mostly snow covered trail. Water was plentiful and all the water report that I printed out from May 3 can be used and updated to may 5. Lots of snow still, but very soft and melting fast. Used the Katoola micro spikes only on one small stretch and could have easily got by without them. Too tired to write more. Long hard day! Camped at an awesome viewpoint of the mountain with snow and an almost full moon.
