Day 42 Pinchot Pass and Mather Pass

Day 42
July 1st
18 miles
PCT mile 819.5

Today I had the spectacular day of successfully summiting 2 passes: Pichot Pass (12,142 ft) and Mather Pass (12,097). And then to top the day off I found a pretty rad camping spot right on a roaring river looking back at Mather Pass to the south and Muir Pass somewhere to the west.

One more pass of almost 12,000...Muir Pass (hopefully tomorrow) I will descend 8 miles to 8000 ft then climb 11 miles to 11,974.

Snow higher then me...ascending Pinchot Pass

Resting between passes...check out the three little blood suckers on my hat.

That's 2...for 2 passes in a day.
