More Pictures from the Pacific Crest Trail – Series No. 6

Good News!

We heard from Donovan this morning, June 18th. He has already past Muir Trail Ranch, and called us from Red Meadow. He was about to have breakfast, and then he will be on his way to Yosemite. Yea! He should be in Tuolumne Meadows this coming Friday or Saturday. We never know exactly where he is on the trail. He has been going at a pretty fast clip, and has had more 30 mile days. How these hikers manage that is a marvel to us.

Well, no sooner did I type part of this, and Donovan called us from the General Store in Tuolumne Meadows, Yosemite national That was yesterday June 20th. So, as I was saying he is really making good time. He sounded pretty good, but tired and one of his hiking poles snapped

He settled into a campsite in the backpacker’s campground, and when he called us later he had a fire going and was about to crash. He said the weather was fantastic! He’s been eating everything in sight, and said he was going down into the Valley Saturday, today, to do laundry and eat pizza and drink beer, and lay out next to the river somewhere and relax, before hitching a ride back up to Tuolumne Meadows.

He mentioned he didn’t want to stay too long down in Yosemite Valley, too expensive and he has acclimated to the higher elevations, and wants to hang out in the Tuolumne area until we meet him.

He had a bear encounter coming down through one of the passes. Said it was “all good”. Didn’t want to make too much noise, so no picture, but the bear was pretty good size, and a beautiful honey color. He or she gave Donovan a good look, and stood up and then went on its way. Donovan said it was “great!” The kind of encounter you want to have!

These pictures are just random and the last we will put on from the Pacific CrestTrail until we meet the Wizz Kid in Yosemite.

I thought we would put some of my favorite pictures on, so some may be duplicates from our previous post.

Again, thanks for reading, and enjoy, and if you have been on the trail God speed and stay safe!

Donovan’s Mom, Anne
