Day 97 – 23 mi – PCT mile 1866


Start: tentsite at 1843

End: PCT junction with trailto Maidu Lake

Miles covered: 23

PCT mile marker: 1866/2652

Highlight: Hoards of tiny frogs at Maidu Lake. I had to take care not to step on them. (Honorable mention: Another great trail meal, this time Pack-It Gourmet’s chili. It’s even better when you can use a tortilla as a spoon.)


Biggest challenge: Avoiding the toilet paper blooms near campsites at Maidu Lake. (Public service announcement: I know it’s gross, but everyone must pack out their toilet paper. See the Leave No Trace website for details on waste disposal in the backcountry.)
