PCT mile 1055, the northern Sierra

Carson drainage of the east Sierras

A beautiful hike today through the not-so-high Sierras. Jagged ridges of brown volcanic rock streaked with white snow gullies enclosed dark green canyons overtopped by a sparking blue sky.
The day lacked perfection due to gale force winds blowing up from the south, occasionally knocking me off the trail and almost off my feet. A small problem hiking but a bigger one camping, as finding a reasonably sheltered spot has been difficult, and I walked several miles farther than intended trying to find one Sleeping through the howling racket will be even more difficult but I will give it a try.
