Ashland Hiking Home

Eight of us headed south to hike along the PCT from Etna Pass to the Taylor Lake Overlook.  The temperatures were cooler than recent hikes but warmer than we expected at around 60 degrees.  The trail is in good condition and we did pass 6 PCT through hikers.  Some were local but one was from the Dominion Republic and another couple were from Czechoslovakia.  Most started from Mexico but did some rerouting because of the fires. 

Lunch was taken overlooking Smith Lake.  We sang Happy Birthday to Sabin who turned 80 today .  Then back to the cars and down to Dotty’s for ice cream.  It was a great day to be outside in decent quality air.
