Life on the PCT from Tehachapi Pass to Kennedy Meadows
In late March, my brother John and I set out on an 8 day, 140 mile backpacking trip on the Pacific Crest Trail from Tehachapi Pass to Kennedy Meadows in California. This was the last big adventure of our 7 and a half week adventure (see previous blog posts). The terrain was more mountainous than I had imagined. Every day, we had piercing blue sky...at times strong winds, cold temps and at times hot weather with blistering sunshine. It was an utterly incredible 8 days as we journeyed through 5 designated wilderness areas in the lowest reaches of the mighty Sierras.
