I belong among the wildflower ... ✨ Counting down the days until I’m out of office and surrounded by the sounds nature. What are your upcoming trips you’re excited about? #california#californiaadventure
PCT DAY 34 | 27 Miles | The Sierras - Where thru-hiking becomes a team sport | It’s my first day in the Sierras and I’m absolutely loving it. The fear mongering and pressure of coordinating who you were going in with is behind me. In the 10 days leading up to the Sierras, I took 5 zeros so I could enter this section with a fun group I could trust. Everyone wanted to enter with Pocket since he got through the Sierras in June of 2017 (another high snow season) and has lots of other experience hiking through hard terrain. He’s an asset and he knows it 😜💗 I had no idea how badly I needed to get out of the desert until I entered this section. As soon as you leave Kennedy Meadows, the terrain changes drastically. Creeks or rivers every two miles, snow covered mountain peaks, chipmunks and marmots running around, huge trees and grassy meadows, fun terrain that brings on full body exhaustion. This place is special and is what backpacking is all about. I’m excited for what’s to come!
