Day 51: Into Sierra City
From Mule Ears Creek mile 1179.3 to Sierra City mile 1195.4
After we camped last night a southbound hiker arrived and camped near us. This morning we learned from him that the trail is snow free from here north into Sierra City. We did not rush once we heard that.
It was a pretty hike, 16 miles, and we did it by 2pm. We got burgers at the general store and are staying at a hostel type place.
Also now hear that the next 600 miles are mostly snow free! Still a bunch of snow around Crater Lake but I won’t be there for a month so hopefully it will be gone by then.
