Pacific Crest Trail Map

Steamboat Lake

My shoulder has greatly improved so Jingle Bell and I decided to do another 50 miles of the PCT, southbound from where we started last year and go southbound. Our plan is to pop out at the Wind River Ranger station where my husband will pick us up.

The weather today was pretty warm and I was dragging on the uphills. Sheesh, take seven days off the trail and the legs feel like mush. Not much traffic on this portion of the trail. Temperature were around 80 degrees. Might be why I was dragging. Didn't see any thru hikers yet. We arrived at Steamboat Lake and there were several car camper types of people here. Not very friendly at all. I guess we are so used to friendly hikers and great environment up at Stehekin, that we were a bit taken back to the closed face attitudes of the people camping here. As we were eating dinner, a man walked past our campsite in hunting gear and carrying a rifle. Creepy.

Not much else to report - should be a nice evening and night. I decided not to use my rain fly on the tent. It is quite pleasant out!
