Tahoe: Mile 1,094

DCIM101GOPROWOW!!! Its been awhile since the last post, sorry about that. Its been an amazing time hiking through the most beautiful wilderness I have ever been in. There was a lot of hype going into the High Sierras and my imagination of what it entailed could not even come close to the spectacular area. I went over many passes with the north sides covered in snow and would drop down in to bright green valleys with the bluest of lakes and clearest rivers. The wildlife was thriving all around, such a stark contrast from the first 700 miles of desert. Colin and I are both healthy and feeling strong, probably the best shape of our lives. We hiked up Mt. Whitney, the tallest mountain in the continental US at 3 in the morning to catch the sunrise, we went over forester pass, the highest point on the PCT, caught trout with our hands, glissaded down some snow fields, crossed over a pass in a hail/snow/rain/thunder and lighting storm, and completed my first 30 mile day. It has been an adventure packed section and by far the most beautiful we have seen thus far.

Now that we are out of the high sierras the terrain is flattening out and we are staring to cruise the miles. Over the last 5 days we averaged about 25 miles a day and only getting faster and stronger. I have about 2 weeks left before i head back east to my brothers wedding so we are going to push the pace and get as close to the California Oregon border as possible. DCIM101GOPRO

This trip just seems to be getting better and better as it goes on. Almost every night we find ourselves saying it was the best day ever. I can’t wait to see what lies ahead on the trail!!!DCIM101GOPRO
