Start: Manter Creek
End: Kennedy Meadows
Miles covered: 9 (+1 into Kennedy Meadows)
PCT mile marker: 702/2652
Highlight: Reaching the major milestone of Kennedy Meadows, and preparing to enter the Sierra section of the PCT. (Honorable mention: Two breakfasts!)
Biggest challenge: So much to do. Laundry, shower, resupply, pack bear can, eat, blog. Some people stay more than one night at Kennedy Meadows, but I prefer not to. It didn’t help that the only washing machine where I stayed was broken, so the clothes came out sopping wet. But hey, at least I had access to a washing machine, right?
Side Note: Throughout the next two weeks, I will not have sufficient internet access or battery power to keep up with the daily blog posts. I will catch up as soon as I can after I reach the next town.
