Route Climbed: PCT from Islip Saddle Date Climbed: December 17th, 2005.
Great day for hiking! There was some snow and ice on the trail but still safe to pass without crampons. It was a very unusual day with thick clouds, which made it a very unique experience for that area. Temperatures were around freezing; very little snow for this time of the year.
"All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night, in the dusty recesses of their minds, awake in the day to find that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes to make it reality."
