Another wildfire has started up north towards the end of the trail. The PCT is now closed in two sections, complicating finishing the trail. There is not much that can be done but to hike what can be hiked and wait out the rest. Reports say that an experienced Hot Shot fire crew has been brought in to try and get the trail passable. But with the latest fire, it seems Mother Nature has other plans. I will be patiently waiting at home, hiking to Snoqualmie and then getting off the trail again for a wedding and hopefully upon my return, the trail will be cleared as well as the smoke on the horizon.
Worst case scenario…..Pacific Crest Trail Thru-hike 2016.
