Overnight off of the horses on the Pacific Crest Trail

Over the weekend we went a few miles south on the Pacific Crest trail from the horsemen’s camp near Government Meadow to Airplane Meadow in the Norse Peak Wilderness. The trail was essentially clear of snow (only a few scattered small drifts) and blow down (only one tree that is easily bypassed). The clear weather made for tremendous Rainier views south of Arch Rock as well great views of the Stewart range in the areas just north of the Raven Roost trail intersection.

Wildflowers were wonderful. With tons of purple Lupine and many other species with hues ranging from blues to whites, yellows and beyond.

We camped near Airplane Meadow and used, for the first time, hammocks. They were “interesting” and I think that as we get more familiar with hammock camping they’ll become much preferable to sleeping on the ground on our overnight backcountry trips.

As always more details, including a detailed route map, driving directions, and pictures, can be found here.
