Bandit - PCT - Jun 16, 2011 - First Day In The Sequoia's
Well I guess it is really day number 2 since Kennedy meadows is in the Sequoia National Forrest, but I have nothing else to say. I have not gotten a spot message and its almost 9:30 but I'm sure all is well. They were planning on hiking earlier in the morning than they have been and getting to bed earlier. They have been getting a late start not leaving camp until 10ish and well with the snow, you want to head out earlier than later. You don't want the snow to be too soft when your headed through. They are not suppose to hit snow for at least another day though. When I hear from him I will keep you posted.
