9AM at Rainy Pass
This backpack is not part of the PCT series. We will likely carpool to Rainy Pass early on Friday morning, meet the Mountain Transporter shuttle there and get a ride up to Harts Pass (approx $180 for the group, ~$25-30pp). I expect a daily mileage of approx 12-15 miles, up to 2500-3000' elevation per day, and a finish fairly early on Sunday. This is an absolutely gorgeous hike and we can expect to see some excellent larch color during the trip, though it could be very cold at night and snow or cold rain is possible. More information to come as the trip gets nearer.
