Snow, we don't need no stinking snowAfter 2 teeny but exhilarating patches of snow/ice north of Apache Peak, I thought that was it. Wrong. Then there was an even more exciting patch north of Antsell Rocks. Then a fourth patch near South Peak - I thought that must be it for sure. Nope. Then I met a group of 5 going south at another "patch" near the north side of South Peak. I asked if this patch was it - "Uhhhhh, nooeeww". I was to quickly learn that there was 80 to 90% snow doverage from that point all the way to the junction with the Devils Slide Trail and even part way down that trail. It seemed like an eternity down the Devils Slide Trail and even further to the town of Idyllwild. A nice old couple - they had to be older than me so they were old - picked me up in their nice Lincoln and dropped me off right in front of the Idyllwild Inn. I am in the "French Country" room which is kind of feminine but it smells a lot better than I do right now. The people at this inn are incredibly helpful, accommodating, and friendly plus they give PCT'ers a discount.
