Prom 5683 11/18/2019
Cool morning and shade but it will warm up.
The first part of this hike should be fine. It is on PCT.
Water is way down there.
Nice hills around.
John on PCT.
Our group before we will separate. Afra and Beth will stay low. Where is Wayne? He is already making a trail for us.
Starting in wash.
We tried this prom about two and half years ago but did not make it. Too much brush everywhere.
But today we have Wayne and Mark with loppers to clear our way.
Wit is thinking; should I stay or should I go?
This hike is either for masochists or (Monday) maniacs. Others stay home!
Made it to the saddle. We can see the other side.
Now, the real climb up is in heavy bush.
Is it going to clear?
Clear patch for a short break. Wit is staying here.
We are pushing up.
Leslie is climbing up not down.
We made it up! Mark from back, his pants still hold.
Others are coming.
John is here.
It seems to us that we have done something impossible.
We are all happy.
Now it is a way down. That should be easier.
Are we still on our new trail?
The biggest credit goes to Wayne. He made it easier with his loppers and muscles.
We are all back. Beth left earlier.
