Day 130 – 15 mi – PCT mile 2434

04EBDAB3-B9E2-40A4-BDEA-3D1572BD8EAD

Start: tentsite at 2419

End: Deep Lake

Miles covered: 15

PCT mile marker: 2434/2652

Highlight: Fiery sunrise on the mountain.

Biggest challenge: Constant cold (35-45 deg F) rain. This might have been my most challenging day on the trail. Not physically challenging, but technically and mentally challenging. I decided that in order to ensure my sleeping layers stayed dry on what was forecast to be a very cold night, I would stop and pitch my tent at 2pm instead of climbing to the top of the ridge to the next possible campsite. It was the safe choice.

    1. Oh! This mountain wasn’t part of the fires. It was just a crazy sunrise. Maybe 10 minutes of sun shining under the thick cloud layer. Then it was all gray.
