After a brief rest I am off and running and hope to be back on the trail in Oregon the week of July 16th with a new strategy. My hope is that some of the snow has melted by then, that some of the PCT hikers will be hitting this section, and I won’t be the only hiker up there battling the big mounds of evil snow.

Looking back there were so many events while hiking this last section that just fell into place. I learned so many things from the land, plants, animals, and more importantly from the people who have touched my life. I feel confident and open for my next adventure.

My real photos are now on Flickr from the 240 mile section from Bucks Summit to Castella, CA:

Here are a few of my favs from this section:
