It hasn't been easy. In fact, it's been the hardest thing I've ever done. From swimming rivers to climbing snowy slopes, the Sierra Nevada has proven to be a big, but doable, challenge! I'm SO glad I went in and saw for myself, though. So many people flipped due to other people's Facebook posts, reports and fear mongering and never even stepped foot in to try. The Sierras have been a ghost town. I feel like 2017 has been such a special year because of the extra challenge. Also, I've gotten to experience these mountains in a more majestic state than most ever will and I'm thankful for that. PCT Sierra Nevada Snowpocalypse Class of 2017!
