aka PCT day 56: June 14th 2015: Deer Creek – Purple Lake – Lake Virginia – Silver Pass – Silver Pass Lake. Ca. 17 ml
Smooth and steady climb till Purple Lake. I walk without fear, not like 2 years ago, where I ran and wrote the “I am to be wild” poem in my head. Beautiful views down the valley. We meet tons of people we know, like the Ravens and Pantera. We have an apple break at Purple Lake and head on towards Lake Virginia where we have a great lunchbreak. We soak our feet, I take a sun bath aaah wonderful! Now ready for Silver Pass? O well yes. But first down to Tully Hole. The views are frikkin BREATHTAKING. 1 ml down along Fish Creek (I totally completely forgot about this stretch) and then up on Silver. It hot, so freakin hot and the mozzies, fuck those bastards. Short break at Squaw Lake and then we push thru. It’s hot, though, but gorgeous. At 5:10 pm we reach camp. An amazing lonely spot inbetween trees above Silver Pass Lake. Awesome!
