Tough trail to Etna Summit

This last day of the section riding into Etna was supposed to be a fairly short and easy stretch, but it turned out to be anything but that. I was trying to get done early because I had an appointment to meet Roger as soon as I finished today, but many things conspired to delay us. According to a post on the PCTA website, the trail was supposed to be clear from Hidden Horse Campground where I spent last night all the way to Etna Summit. But it turned out only to be cleared for the first six miles. After that, I ran into incredible obstacles which slowed us down along the way.
