Pacific Crest Trail Map

Making up missed trail miles

Well for different reasons there are several sections of the trail I missed in 2008 and then of course that portion I didn't complete in Washington. I have been working on these sections, or intending to since then. '09 saw too many injuries, last year was primed to hike Sierra City north to Chester in late June and there was too much snow. Now I had planned on a High Sierra - Piute Pass Trail Head to Sonora Pass but reading journals and getting weather reports, doesn't sound like the year to do that. So...back to the drawing boards and attempting the Sierra City to Chester section that had some fire closure in '08. Gathering data on trial conditions, snowmelt, etc. south to north, north to south? That is the task today then hopefully on the trial by end of week or early the following depending on what I learned. My buddy Kathie will hike with me. She was injured in '08 and wasn'table to make the journey. She is always excited about hiking the PCT, meeting through hikers in her neighborhood - she lives in Medford and often hikes sections of he PCT in southern Oregon. Not in the condition I was in '08, plus of course 3 years older but as my father always said - where there's a will there's a way - so, I continue, as so many of you out there do.
