PCT - Ski Road to Grouse Gap 6-26-17

Photos by Bob, Denise and Rich

Twenty hikers set out, some for the first time, to enjoy the popular hike to Grouse Gap Shelter. The weather was near perfect with blue skys and temps in the 60s. After Darryl agreed to be drafted as our second group hiking leader, we hit the PCT with our customary enthusiasm.

It was Spring conditions on the trail with lots of new green growth and wild flowers. There was one large dead fall that nearly all showed their agility climbing over. Many step over creeks traversed the trail, so many that it sounded like the bath tubs being filled on Saturday night for Sunday morning church service.

We had a relaxing lunch at the shelter as we spread out on near by logs. Dark chocolate was shared around to everyone's delight.

On the way back, one of our number experienced an accident when she slipped off the trail. After resting in an attempt to recuperate, she was helped to her feet and made her way back with the help of Mike L, Mike B, and Bob P.

Twelve of us enjoyed beer and fries later at Calahans.
