    ... order to avoid collapsing the snow bridge on the pass. Forester Pass is officially the highest point of the PCT. When we arrived here, we took many pictures. The north slope of the pass had much snow with amazing views. Getting down was a little tricky, involving route finding and post-holing, since the afternoon sun had softened the snow enough to make you sink in. At one point, I sank waist deep in ...

    ... Chicken Springs Lake, our first alpine lake, by 4:15. It is nice to not hike all day and get to camp early to lounge and relax. Plenty of water here to drink. There were many other hikers camped here as well. Teflon actually swam in the 11,230 ft. elevation lake. Apparently she is impervious to cold. The water was so cold, I wouldn't even wet my feet. Needless to say, it is nice camping next to a lake. This is what I am most looking forward to in the ...

The other hikers I past were spooked by me, maybe because I was all breathing like a train, charging up the mountain. They definitely let me pass them. I was definitely doing better than yesterday. I was on fire. When I saw a clear view of the Owens Valley and the town of Ridgecrest, CA higher up the ridge, I had to stop to see if I ...

    ... I had left with a group of 6 other hikers and we all took it easy and stayed relatively close together that first day. In the group was Meta, a hiker in his late 20s who after getting his undergrad at UPenn took off to south east Asia bought a motorcycle and began riding around the country side. We have even visited some of the same cities in Yunnan province china .
    Another Hiker was Hatchet, a young mid 20s kid with some wild stories. Stories about living on the ...

    ... of the Southern Appalachians): Shane discovered firefly larvae glowing under the Redwoods one night as we were camped on a roadside pullout. He called me to see and it looked exactly like the glow of the females I have seen on the ground in the woods of our NC home. The females don't fly and so their tiny lights are motionless on the ground and my eyes are used to spotting them after years of looking for them each May. There were no flying ...
