Hetch Hetchy Alternate: day 2

written Jun 27, 2017 @ 04:01 AM after hiking 25.50 miles

Okay, part two of the unmaintained trail. Except, as I quickly found out, "unmaintained" here means "imaginary", more or less.

According to GPS, I'm exactly on the trail.

After 5.5 miles of bushwhacking, I finally arrived at a sight so pretty that I almost cried: a Jeep road with a sign saying "Hetch Hetchy: 7.9"

So wonderful.

After 7.9 miles and 1.5 miles of road walking, I finally reached Hetch Hetchy, which is much prettier than I thought it would be! Even the dam was pretty neat.

How cool.

Where San Francisco gets its water.

After a huge climb, I was where I wanted to be: a few short miles from the PCT! Tomorrow is a big day: I'm hoping to get back on the PCT and get out of Yosemite in one day.
