Hiking the PCT from Mt. Islip to Mt. Baden-Powell
Sunday, May 26, 2013
Whew, I've been so busy lately and just noticed that I haven't posted in a while.
Yesterday we hiked a section of the PCT; just a 14.5 mile stretch - perfect for a day hike. We bagged a total of 5 peaks, so this was a roller coaster hike rather than the usual 'first up than down' hike. The weather was gorgeous.
Starting out this hike has an 'alpine' feeling to it.
Further up, towards the second peak the trail leads through a burn area, literally a tree grave yard. Sad, though spectacular.
We found these little flowers, which just seemed to have popped out of the ground at random.
Wonderful views all around. It was a perfect day.
