Exploring the world with Curtis and Peggy Mekemson
Adam and Eve on the PCT
I met up with an older couple on the PCT. “We’re Adam and Eve,” they told me, revealing the trail names. “That’s because we are older than the hills.” They were six months older than me, which made me wonder about how old I was. While they weren’t hiking my distance, they had hiked 1200 miles of the PCT over time. I’m sorry I didn’t get there photo, but their status led me to an interesting observation: There weren’t any fig leaves on Grider Creek. That led me to go in search of possible substitutes. I suspect this Big Leaf Maple was the best bet, but I found others with possibilities. Thoughts?
