Sander on the PCT



Day 13: San Jacinto Peak

14.2 miles (22.9km)

08 May 2018

Wake up in the middle of the night as the entire cabin is shaking. Earthquake with epicenter about 30 miles north.

Another pickup truck ride in the morning from our cabin halfway to the trailhead. First part of the day, we did not follow the official pct route as we wanted to go to San Jacinto Peak. The aim was the campsite at mile 195.4 but I ended up pitching my tent well after sunset, exhausted, at mile 193.6. The climb and descent was a lot harder than anticipated.
