So we have arrived at the infamous Kennedy Meadows. It is a well known stop along the PCT as it is the last reasonable resupply before entering the High Sierra mountain range.

I don't know what they shouted out of their car, but it ended with "...you idiot!" so I assume they were irate at us risking our lives on this narrow road, one we hadn't known was going to be like this until we ...
