Day 7 – Up to Rainbow Lake

Derek says from the trail at 7:07 am, “Up and at’em, had bfast, packing up. Will hit trail soon. Headed to Rainbow Lk Mdw…will drop 300 ft then gain 2,000. Team is great and working as a unit.”

The PCT can be a pretty dusty trail and can show that it is well used.  My experience has been that when you get off the PCT it is a significantly better experience; less dust, fewer  people and more green. I am hoping that for them. Here is a photo from the shore of the lake.

In the photo below you can see the switch backs they have to endure before being rewarded with the lake.
