PCT - Hyatt Lake to Greensprings Summit 6-15-16

Well, it wasn't the greatest day for a hike, but it wasn't the worst either. It was mostly overcast with temperatures in the 40s with an occasional sun break. We did, however, manage to avoid the forecasted "chance of rain and snow showers".

The trail is in good shape except for a short section just north of our usual meadow lunch spot which has several large trees down across the trail. Otherwise, the deadfall have been cleared and there is evidence of recent trail maintenance.

We managed to finish the hike with 4 of the 5 starting hikers. About 30 minutes after lunch one of the hikers remembered that he had left his poles at the lunch spot and turned around to fetch them. The rest of the group, with images of beer and fries dancing in their heads, pressed on to enjoy refreshment at the Green Springs Inn where we enjoyed snappy service. We did pick up the 5th. hiker on our way down the hill.

We celebrated John's 70th birthday today with berry pie and root beer.
