PCT Around and Over Big Red 8-10-15

Eight Monday hikers headed up the PCT towards Wrangle Gap. We climbed around Big Red Mountain, then just before the trail descended towards the Gap, we turned left up the hill and ascended the summit of the mountain. Arriving ahead of schedule we turned left and after a saddle we ascended a second hill with a somewhat different view, where we had lunch. The views from the summit are 360 degrees and magnificent.

The weather was perfect and there was no smoke. We all agreed it was a great hike and a do-again. With the extra viewpoint we did about 9 miles.
