Sonora Pass PCT peaks

Postby balzaccom » Wed Jul 03, 2013 11:36 am

The good news? I am now healthy again, and able to hike.

How do I know? Because over the weekend we went up to Sonora Pass and headed South on the Pacific Crest Trail for a day hike. On the way, we managed to find a couple of peaks to climb, including one that was 11,845 high.

And that went just fine, thank you very much.

The flowers were blooming,

and the lichen in this area was astonishing.

Plus, the views from up there were simply stunning. Check out this shot, looking southeast along the crest of the Sierra towards Matterhorn Peak, the Sawtooth Range, and in the distance, all the major peaks of Yosemite, including Cloud's Rest and the Clark Range over there on the right. Wow!

It sure felt good to be able to hike again, and we're already making plans for a longer stay in the Sierra, this time, with backpacks!

If you want to see the photos of the whole hike, here's a link that will take you to the trip log for the hike on Picasa.
