Celebrating one month on the Pacific Crest Trail by taking a ZERO in Mojave today!
We’re approximately one week away from arriving at Kennedy Meadows; the gateway into the Sierra Mountains. Cell service will be non-exsistent for the next few weeks so prepare for a lull in blogging.
There’s a lot of hype and fear building around the Sierras. So much worry in fact, some people have decided to skip the Sierras all together. We understand there are risks ahead and have established additional plan B’s as needed. We are sure footed, skilled and prepared for the challenge! More important than being equipped with cramp-ons and ice axes, God’s also goes with us.
Please pray for us as we go through the Sierras! We are very excited for this part of the PCT and can’t wait to see what God has in store!
