PCT, Ebbetts Pass: Raymond Lake on 07/02/2012 16:32:26 MDT Print View

6/30-7/1
Perfect weather with a lot of Thru-Hikers on the PCT plus Trails Angels doing what they do best. There was a stand set up where the PCT crossed HWY4 with food and drink for everyone. It was a small party of 15-20 homeless people (LOL) eating and resupplying. A great little scene for sure! I talked to a few hikers and staff and then started my to trip to Raymond Lake-22 miles out and back. I started at 10:00am on Saturday and returned to my car on Sunday at 12:00--26 hours of pure enjoyment. Here are few pictures:

Awesome photos, Jay. Just followed your path on google maps terrain, too.

I, too, could use a recharge like that. This June just became the 2d wettest in Portland history.
