PCT Day 61 – Zero Day in Kennedy Meadows

Last Updated on March 25, 2020

I had a lovely day relaxing in Kennedy Meadows and working through my resupply box. I had sent all of the gear needed to traverse the High Sierras to Kennedy Meadows – including a bear canister, whippet (hiking pole with an ice axe handle), crampons, microspikes, 8 days of food, and extra warm clothes.  While I’ll no longer be hiking the Sierras, I’ll still be encountering some snowy sections when I flip to Northern California.  So, I had to sort through my gear and decide what to send home and what to keep.

Here are some photos from my time off in Kennedy Meadows:
