PCT Section I, Sonora Pass to Tuolumne Meadows, 24th to 27th August 2006

Running from Mexico to Canada, the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) is divided into sections, some up to 200 miles long.  The most well known section runs from Tuolumne Meadows south to Kennedy Meadows, coinciding for the most part with the John Muir Trail (JMT).  My adventure would be to the north, on PCT section I, which runs 77 miles from Sonora Pass to Tuolumne Meadows.  My plan was to complete that stretch in 3 days and then spend a fourth day cruising 22 miles, mostly downhill, to Yosemite Valley where I would catch a bus/train home.

To appreciate my trials and tribulations you may want to have the profile pdf open as you read.  If I was smarter I would have created the profile before the trip.

After driving up to Sonora Pass with me, Em and I hiked together for about 30 minutes before a tearful goodbye, at least for one of us.
