Pacific Crest Trail Map

To Ashland -- OR sect B

Flew to Medford and RVTA bus into Ashland. On way down from Seattle, can see a lot of snow on the Oregon volcanos. My plan is to hike PCT north from Ashland to Stevens Pass. The snow reports are not real encouraging, guess I will find out. Easy and cheap public bus, airport to Ashland. My only real preparation this year was a day hike up to top of Mission Ridge ski area by Wenatchee, two days ago. In Ashland I was fortunate to receive a ride to the trail from a transportation angel, so was strolling through the "Sound of Music" meadows above Ashland by 4:30 in the afternoon. Seems like the late spring has kept people at home so don't see anyone else on the trail today. Kept walking, past the resort and the campground at Hyatt Lake, finding a spot with a lake view to camp by sunset. Made 7 miles for the day. Mile markers for starting and ending locations are off the Halfmile series of maps.
