PCT Hike, MM1127 To MM1108, Desolation Wilderness

PCT MM1127 To MM1108 Boy Scout Troop 0917160650 PCT MM1127 To MM1108 North Of Barker Pass 0917160815
Saturday: (09/17) Up before the scouts (above left), on trail at 0725. Enjoyed a table for brunch at Barkers Pass. Met a member of Tahoe Rim Trail Association who was there to resupply a group of their hikers. I met their 19 Hikers a couple miles down trail.

Jim a trail runner caught up to me at Lake Richardson (above left), about 7 miles from Barker Pass. He mentioned there was a hiker behind me doing the southern half of the PCT. Shortly, I enjoyed a break as Cookie caught up to me. I greeted her with “you must be the half section hiker.”  We discussed the hike, comparing notes. She eventually asked how I knew about her hike. I explained the trail telegraph told me, Jim the runner.

Huckleberry and Macro from Mill Valley and another hiker passed me a mile before my destination at Fontanillis Lake (above left). Nice campsite at MM1108 but a bear to find and get to because it was located up in the boulders. I had to scramble up the rocks and boulders to it. Completed 19 miles today. 18 miles to go.
