We summited a mountain today! Holy smokes! 9406 feet!
That was insane. We got a ride out of town from a very nice lady and her dog, Circle.
She dropped us in the parking lot and then we started climbing. We climb. We descend. We climb again. Pacific Climbing Trail. That’s a more accurate name.
3000 feet up. Snow started about a mile and a half from the parking lot. We put on our micro spikes. We slid. We fell. We kept going.The last mile abandoned the trail altogether. We climbed straight up! Some places had good steps but most places had giant steps. I fell a lot. 🤣 🛷 🎿 👍
You can see Steve at the top of the hills, waiting for me!
At the summit, we talked for quite a while with a German couple. They’re making a documentary. Check out their blog: http://www.pct2019.org
We were pushing for Little Jimmy Campground but I couldn’t make it. I felt so exhausted. What a crazy difficult first day back. We stopped about three miles short, but still found a beautiful site.
