Southern California
Starting: Section B5 - Idyllwild
Ending:  Section B5 - Apache Springs

Hitched back to the exact spot I left the PCT & began what has been described as one of the harder sections. Finally doing some ridge walking, the trail follows the spine of a series of peaks culminating near Mt. San Jacinto.

The day was very tough but beautiful. I am camped on a ridge near Apache Peak with the lights of Palm Springs blazing in the desert below…


Send Bearcan't an email or sign the guestbook at his photoblog.
I accidentally left my camera in the backseat of the car during my 1st ever hitch. Luckily, the kind folks who gave me a ride, Mr. & Mrs. Gookin, were tracked down via the pct-l email list by the amazing Natalie and they sent my camera ahead to Big Bear. Thank you! So, no photos are available between May 23rd - May 30th.
