This hike on the PCT was special for several reasons. It was our first backpacking trip of the year, after waiting through a long cold winter. It was also our first backpacking event after waiting months for Vicki’s shinsplints to finally finish healing. And, lastly and most importantly, this trip was intended to complete the final sub-section of California Section A on the Pacific Crest Trail that we had yet to hike. Hooray!
That it also went to Lake Morena, the site of the world-famous PCT Kick-Off, was merely an added bonus.
