Pacific Crest Trail Map

up and over Mather Pass

It seems to be helping taking my BP meds at night instead of in the AM I'm not quite so tired that I can't drag myself up a Mtn. Today I did the climb at a mile an hour this is pretty normal for steep uphill and I was able to make up a little on the down not much because of the rocks but much better then it has been.
Tomorrow is our last 12000 foot pass Muir Pass we are starting at 8000 so it's a 4000 foot climb in 10 miles ugh it will take me all day to get to the top then I have to go down a mile or two to find a campsite.
I'm hoping after the high passes I can pick up my milage as right now it stinks and I'm going as fast as I can, I just can't seem to build up, my thought is that it's the BP meds I'm taking but I don't want to totally stop it as my BP is high right now. I'd taking them at night doesn't work I'm going to try taking half.
At the end of the day we came down a shoot that has a gazillion switchbacks called the Golden Staircase, I'd call it the downhill from hell myself . It's takes a toll on the knees it's so steep. I felt sorry for the people we saw going up it.

Journal Photo


"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, Pepsi in one hand, backpack in the other, yellin' "Holy Sh**, What a Ride!"
