Let us leave a splendid legacy for our children…let us turn to them and say, this you inherit guard it well, for it is far more precious than money… and once destroyed, nature’s beauty cannot be repurchased at any price.
~ Ansel Adams
Sierra City to The “A” Tree
North of Sierra City the PCT climbs 2,000 feet to rise to the Sierra Crest and stays at this high vantage point for miles and miles. One rock lookout point after another tempts the hiker to just stand and gaze at bountiful lakes and valleys complete with wildflower lined trail of course.
This section of the trail is manicured and maintained by local volunteers with the help from AmeriCorps and the Forest Service. While I hiked the trail crews were hard a work and I was eager to talk with them! Thank you trail crews and volunteers!
Odwalla Banana Nut Bar, recommended by Josh and Dorian!
