Dicentra and I headed up to knock out section K of the PCT on the 16th. we averaged 15 miles per day, took a shorter day on day 4 cause of the heat and a late start and on day 5 we pulled about 18 to 19 miles out. The scenery was great, the fishing wound up mainly catching trees. A detailed synopsis can be found on the links below and here's a couple teaser shots. More pictures on the blog, as soon as Dicentra gets her TR's done I'm sure she'll also post them here as well. There is also a fan page on Facebook for the blog now if you want to follow the blog but don't have a blogger account.

Man, I LOVE that section of trail. I've hiked it 3 times so the pictures brought back some great memories- especially Escondido Coffee!

Thanks for sharing your great trip Jared!
