Pacific Crest Trail Map

Two days hike from mile 700 to 680

I was able to drop my truck at the Chimney Peak camp ground on Chimney Peak road and was picked up by Al - the owner of the general store in Kennedy Meadows.
Scott his son and Al were willing to do that during a very busy season. Al drove me to a road close to mile 700.
From there I hiked south. Wind start to blow hard and it became code. Soon light rain started. I was not equipped for rain. I had to find a shelter under some rocks. When the rain stopped I reach a creek where many hikers stopped to get water or spend the night. I counted about 30 thru hikers the first day.
I filled water and started the ascent to highest peek of this hike (8000). About half way I found a nice spot for a tent and decided to stop for the night. It was about 6:30 PM.
Next morning I continued the hike to the destination. The second day I counted more than 40 thru hiker hiking north.
As I was not prepared (I didnt hike for months) it was not easy for my, but as usual it was great. I love hiking on the PCT.
