Day 72 – 26 mi – PCT mile 1496

914E4493-4BE5-4E8E-A37E-2FBF9D8BC7D4

Start: Ash Camp

End: tentsite at mile 1496

Miles covered: 26

PCT mile marker: 1496/2652

Highlight: Sometimes the best thing is just a super-light pack, the consequence of eating almost everything before heading into the next town for resupply.

Biggest challenge: Breaking through all of the spiderwebs across the trail first thing in the morning. (And the occasional mosquito, fly, gnat, or tiny insect that I haven’t been able to identify. They haven’t been as bad as they were in the Sierra section, but they never went away completely.)

One thought on “Day 72 – 26 mi – PCT mile 1496

  1. A couple of weeks ago I was reading a hiker blog that had a glossary of hiking terms. It had a definition for “cobknocker”, That’s the name given to the hiker who takes out all the spider webs across the trail first thing in the morning. Wouldn’t be surprised if a few hikers had that as their trail name.
