PCT Donner Pass to Sierra City, July 2017, 1 of 12 images

 

The start of the trail
We began by crossing Highway 80: there are two tunnels under the east and west bound sections that you walk through - I'm standing at the entrance to the first one. Having been spoiled by the high Sierra, I didn't have high expectations for the scenery on this trip and I was so wrong - it was very beautiful. I highly recommend it if you're looking for an early season 40-mile trip (map on the last slide).
