some snow, not much

MikeD - PCT - Apr 22, 2013 - Back Again
Woke up at dawn, and went 10.9 PCT miles, plus 2.5 more to get to a road,
then hitched back to the apple blossom inn in idyllwild. I used my new
water filter (we were all short on water). Another tough climb that seemed
to take forever! Beautiful country though.

3 of us are splitting a motel room tonight (family, I know you find this
hard to believe!) Sea King is a sommelier in Vail. But what we really care
about is having enough water!

RayPan is going to rethink the trail ahead, the up hills are killing him.
Sea King and I have a line to a ride back to the trailhead. Then do the non
PCT 2.5miles (all up hill!) to get started. I know there are big elevations
involved. Words like Fuller Ridge. 86 miles to the next resupply at Big
Bear hostel.
