Thu. 8-1-02

First day on our PCT adventure.  Drove down with Patty, Billy, and Ron yesterday and camped at Leavitt Meadows just off hwy. 108.  Got an early start—at Sonora Pass by 9am.  Said our goodbyes, and Ron and I were off.


Mostly ridge walking today—near the crest as the trail suggests.  The trail often contoured high along a ridge.  The views were great—a little hazy.  Clouds were around most of the day but we saw no rain and it’s clear tonight.  We’re camped around 9200 ft. at Kennedy Canyon.  Saw some cows (!) on the trail before we got to camp.  I guess they are allowed to graze here.  We’re not in a designated wilderness area right here—but we passed in and out of Emigrant Wilderness today.
