Only my foot touched Mexico, but it counted! I was worried about the heat in the dessert part of the PCT.  But both years I hiked the temps were very cold.  I sent home for a warmer sleeping bag sort after leaving Lake Moreno. (May 2005)

This was the trail along the ridge at Mission Creek.  Finding the trail at some points was challenging.  Ron Strickland took this picture and emailed it to my husband.

This was the San Jacintos in 2005.  Finding the route was strickly a compass and topo map thing.  The night before I camped with John Donovan but I thought he had gone on ahead the day before.  I didn't realize he was behind me.  I almost missed the trail to Idlewild myself, but a day hiker was sitting at the turn off.

I hiked through the Mohave desert with Christy, ?, Toek (from Holland), and David. I was worried about the night hike, but it turned out it was cold enough that day hiking was great.  (PCT 2004)
