Pacific Crest Trail Hike Launch

 On Sunday I met up with cousin Aric Aterbery with his parents PJ and Craig for Aric's send off on through-hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, 2650 miles, to the Canadian border. The pic shows Aric's start at the Mexican border.
 The official send-off comittee L to R:
Me, Craig[holding Zee], Aric, PJ.
 Headed up the beginning of the PCT.
 Aric and PJ.
This is one of the three "surprises" we saw in just a half hour but Aric says he didn't see anymore for the rest of the day.

Hey Joe! Cool! Last year I tracked a friend's son's journey thru-hiking the PCT. This year much more and later snow, especially up here in the PNW. N Cascades highway not supposed to open until June, one of latest ever. Happy trails.

It seems like its a different challenge every year. Lots of snow this year but no fires [yet].
