Started: Campsite (786.0)
Ended: Bullfrog Lake Trail (788.5)
Side Trail: Kearsarge Pass
Total Miles: 2.5 PCT + 9 Bonus
We had quite a hike out of there. The 2.5 miles of PCT was straight up and takes us most of the way up Glen Pass at 11,949 feet. We then left the trail onto the Bullfrog Trail only to climb over Kearsarge Pass at 11,760 feet.
The view on this side trail was excellent, but that was too much work that didn’t count towards Canada.
To get to Bishop, 40 miles away, first we hitched from the Onion Valley Trailhead into the town of Independence. Then we hitched to Bishop. We showered, ate, called my family, and slept.
