Postholer - PCT - Aug 24, 2013 - Sun And Fog
Rolled out bed and onto the trail before 6am. It's getting increasingly difficult to leave the comfort of civilization. Fortunately the end is nigh.

The day started out foggy and drizzling as expected. About noon as the trail took an easterly trend it cleared into a mostly sunny day. Nice.

Big climbs and descents was the rule of the day. With 7 days of food in my pack it certainly didn't help, thus the low mileage.

After the fog cleared the views became spectacular which is why I like Alpine Lakes Wilderness so well. Spectacle Lake was lost in the fog. Bummer.

The afternoon was spent descending to Lemah Creek then climbing back out of it. Tonight I'm camped next to a group of Boy Scouts out for their 50 mile badge. Tomorrow is their last day. Congratulations to them!

Nite. - in motion
