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.

Wow, Mac…. photos look like stills from a creepy movie! Those fires must be a site to see….
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.
