Days 35-41 - Weds, June 27-Tues, July 3

Whew! Made it through many of the high passes in the Sierras:
Cottonwood(11,160'),Forester(13,180'), Glen(11,978'), Pinchot(12,130'), Mather(12,100'), & Muir(11,955') - all in a 135 mile stretch. We decided not to do Mt Whitney. I've been to the top the last 3 years and it is about 16 miles off the PCT.

We stopped at Muir Trail Ranch on Monday to get our resupply. I opened my bucket and found a stowaway, Wild Things Max doll. He had a note saying he wanted to do the rest of the PCT with me. I love my new Max. ;-) I was really ready for my new Hardrocks and my food supplies. One downer - my new Suunto watch didn't come here either. :-(

On Tuesday, we made it through Selden Pass(10,900') and camped near Mono Creek at mile 875.
Me and Kurt (The Corrupter) are having so much fun on the PCT!
I will be at Mammoth on July 5 and will staying there with 4 thru-hikers. I was able to get a short text message and these pictures sent for my blog. I will have more details when I reach Mammoth.

“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.” John Muir

Hey Dirt Diva

You are an unbelievable hiker -can anyone keep up with you?

Do you ever do off trail treks?

It was cool to see you using a Contrail tent. It really is big enough for two good friends=)
