I just received a repost of a June 24, 2010 Trail Journal entry from Dreams. Dreams hooked up with MeGaTex for a few days as we all were backpacking through the Sierra on our 2010 Pacific Crest Trail thru hikes. This part of the PCT is not much for solo travel, and is where even seasoned hikers who prefer to walk the trail alone often find themselves teaming up with other hikers for situations just like this one!
I agree that this was the scariest and most dangerous water crossing on the whole PCT. I still have mild PTSD that lingers on, still triggered by the unique deep bass roar of these overflowing streams and watercourses.
So, enjoy the following report from a day way back back in 2010. Thanks, Dreams !
