Fire Closure reroute? 10 miles?
Total 27.9 miles, 44.9 km
Battery is low and not a lot of detail in this one. Additional detail to be added later.
Amazing country to walk through. A pity about the constant smoke.
Snow makes the perfect addition to cool water bottles.
Two fires are burning north of here and the PCT has been rerouted via the Coyote Trail. From the trail junction you actually get remarkably good views across to the PCT and can see the smoke billowing up behind the hill on which the trail runs by.
Other than a line on the map there isn’t a lot known about the rerouted section. I expected it to be rougher for sure.
