What a difference a year makes!

Postby gary c. » Thu Sep 13, 2012 11:31 pm

I know that some of you followed Erin's (AKA Wired) PCT blog last year. This year she came back and did the JMT just to see what she couldn't see under the snow last year. Even if you didn't follow her hike last year I think you will like her collection of picture comparisons.

That was neat to see. And some of those crossings were brutal!

Last year was a brutal year for the PCT hikers. If you scroll down a little ways below the comparison pictures there is a video done by her sometime hiking partners of water crossings and glissading last year.

that was rad, I always wonder what my surroundings look like in different seasons...those river flows look pretty cool too.
