Pacific Crest Trail Map

Return to civilization

I was on my way back out after multiple cold nights. I had made up my mind I was going to make it to my car today. I was really dreading the final climb out of Lake Janus up to Union Gap. My dread was well founded; it was a real grind for me after the previous 2 climbs of the day. My quads were screaming at me as I finished the descent to Smithbrook Road.

It is always gratifying to get the first view of your car and notice that all the windows are intact and all 4 tires are still inflated. Then it is nice when the engine turns over. After washing up a little so I could not smell myself anymore; I got to enjoy a cold can of Squirt on the bumpy ride out to Hwy 2.
