11.5 miles of hiking • 1750' elevation gain •
Ponds and more ponds! Tarns, lakes galore as well. We took established trails for the first part of the day, then some version of the various older and unmaintained trails to get back. The PCT is great, but I really prefer the older trails though the meadows. The sun never fully emerged but it was out enough to make lots of great reflections in the water. Great day, great trailfriend, great day to be alive.
