Pacific Crest Trail Map

Southern Sierra Nevada

Haven't posted lately due to little cell coverage and there will even be less as I approach the High Sierra's .

We'll I made it pass the 46 mile waterless stretch . Carried eight litters , talk about being loaded down , I hated it , pure torture . It turned out that trail Angels stocked the water caches along the way but the thinking is that you should'nt depend on them and take the chance of running out of water creating a life threatening situation . Still mostly desert environment and am definitely ready for a cooler and wetter hike . Have been overlapping with four other hikers for several days , interesting bunch , good people , good conversations , but am mostly hiking solo which is what I want this journey to be .

Taking a zero in Ridgecrest and then onward tomorrow . Should make it to Kennedy Meadows in about three days .
