How Dangerous Are High Sierra Conditions? (from the Fresno Bee)

This article appeared in the Fresno Bee on June 15th.  “Most people never will tackle the wilds of the Pacific Crest Trail. Now, even experienced hikers are among those staying away.”

This is why I am bypassing the Sierra Nevada for now. I will start back on the trail at I80 / Truckee or Sierra City and continue on to Canada. After reaching Canada I’ll come back and do the 450 miles I skipped.
