California, Here I Come!

August 18, 2014

I drove south out of Washington on August 16th and 17th, after finishing that last leg from Stevens Pass to the Ross Lake trailhead.  My mom borrowed a trailer and met me at Mammoth to take Shyla back home to Topanga where Dr. Beth Stolzy would be able to stitch up the wound on her neck that happened in the fall at the end of our last ride in Washington. My goal for this short ride was to ride south from Agnew Meadows on the east side of the Sierras near Mammoth, coming out on the west side at Vermilion Valley Resort above Fresno.  I only had a two days before having to get to CSUN for some grad school orientation, so I had to ride fast, but at least the trail was much more cooperative here than it was in Washington.  It was so strange to have it well-maintained and clear of trees after the struggles we had in the last stretch around Stehekin!  And the trail was swarming with hikers, especially since in this part the PCT and the John Muir Trail follow the same track, and this was the height of the hiking season in the Sierra.
