Pacific Crest Trail Map


It was cold last night. I slept in and got started on the trail as the sun poked its nose over the horizon a little after 7 am. I hate dry camping. Perhaps I have mentioned that a dozen or so time before. I never get to drink as much as I need the night before and then I was rationing water all of the way to Pear Lake.

The plan was to continue on from Pear Lake but I knew I did not have the energy to get to Pass Creek and I had been told that there was no decent water at the seasonal W Cady Creek. I was not going to dry camp again. Did I mention I do not like dry camping?

As I was climbing out of Pear Lake I made the decision to go far enough north that I could connect the dots coming south from W. Cady Creek trail sometime in the future. I got to the top of some short steep switchbacks and almost to the highpoint on the ridge. I put a waypoint in my GPS for future reference and turned back to Pear Lake. Tons of NBers are coming and going as I lounge here in my tent.

I have tucked myself in early trying to stay warmer than last night.
