PCT - Castle Crags - North From the Dog Creek TH 2-18-15

Photos by Dan and Jim

Well, finally, summer is here. Beautiful day, full sun and unusually warm for mid-February. It was in the 50s upon arrival at the TH and it warmed up into the low 70s by mid-day.

The 5+ inches of rain here two weeks ago meant that the creeks coming off the Crags were running, although all were easily passable. Nice to walk along listening to the rushing water. And the creek crossings added a bit of spice to the hike. Rest assured, the integerty of the dry boot club was not compromised.

At lunch Jim and Beverly decided to split off and hike up Burstarse Creek to the falls. The rest of us continued on up to Sabin's Point for a leisurely lunch in the sun.

We took post hike refreshment lazing in the late afternoon sun on the patio at the Goat.
