August 14th to 17th 2008: Desolation Wilderness and Granite Chief Wilderness

Introduction

The cabin is located on the South Fork of the Yuba River, about 5 miles east of Downieville (see SierraStreamSideCabins dot com for more information).  Em, PJ and I would be joining Melissa, Mark and Isabella for our 3-day, 2-night trip which was also our first family vacation.

After locating the cabin on an AAA map, I noted that if I started hiking north on the PCT at Echo Lake (South Lake Tahoe in Desolation Wilderness), about 100 miles later Id reach Highway 49 which I could follow 5 miles west to the cabin.

After determining the facts above, all I did to prepare for the trip was to assemble some maps, pack my bag, and gather some food a few nights before hand.  I probably should have looked at the maps and talked to a ranger regarding the trail conditions.
