PCT Trail Angel Hike South from Panther Creek

Hike Distance: 7.5 miles      Yearly Hike Distance: 992.7 miles

Elevation Gain: 870 feet      Yearly Elevation Gain: 105577 feet

Another fine day providing trail magic on the PCT, south of Panther Creek WA! We only saw three thru-hikers on this section, but it’s always a worthwhile and enjoyable experience. We passed out the usual Oreo Cookie six-packs and Starbucks Via coffee packets. First, we met the NOBO hiker “Lazy John”, from the Czech Republic. We jumped past each other a few times as we alternately took breaks, and we also bumped into the other hikers. haha We then met the SOBO thru-hiker “Hat”! We had a wonderful conversation before we parted ways. Lastly, we were startled by the NOBO thru-hiker “Quiet”. It was appropriate that we didn’t hear him coming until he started to pass us on the side. haha
