We only have time for a couple of short hikes this weekend, but we also want to test some more gear on a cold night. So we work through the morning, pack up, and are on the Pacific Crest Trail by 3:30 PM.
We are treated to vibrant sunset, Mt. Jenkins basking in the last light. It’s getting dark when we find a snowy campsite at the first saddle below Morris Peak. Exposed water starts to freeze immediately. I think we’ll get our cold night.
