Pacific Crest Trail Map
Finally the last resupply box has been mailed!!
On Saturday we begin our journey SOBO (South Bound) from Old Station, CA to
Kennedy Meadows, approx. 700 miles. This section was skipped last year due
to the high snow conditions. We are going SOBO so that we can acclimatize
to the high elevations of the passes to hopefully avoid altitude sickness.
The other advantage of going this direction is that the scenery will
continually get better as we climb thru the Sierras.
The snow is melting out quickly and the rivers are low so hopefully the
mosquitoes will be gone, ha, ha!!
We will be hiking with Plan B, Old Dog and possibly Seeker thru this
section. It is with great joy we are finally returning to the trail..
The Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) is a 2,650 mile National Scenic Trail that runs from Mexico to Canada through California, Oregon and Washington.
