July 7. Heading south. We bumped north from Kearsarge Pass to Castle Crags on June 27. Trail from Castle Crags south was in great shape on 6/27 for the first 25 miles. Hit snow at about 5500 ft. Hiked in deep snow for the next twenty miles and rarely saw trail. Used GPS extensively. Found that walking the south side of the ridge and Summit Rd. much better than PCT on north side of ridge. Trail good from about 5 miles south of Mushroom Rock to Burney Falls State Park.
