Comments
Comments: Northbound Presi traverse. 5:20 a.m. start, 3:22 p.m. finish ( caught the 3:55 shuttle, $19 back to my car ).


Met one other southbound group of traversers, some I knew. Fresh from 3 weeks of Colorado 14ers, easy hiking with lots of hemoglobin AND oxygen at comparitively low elevations. Humidity and slippery rocks were the minor challenges. Warmest I remember on the range, hadn't done a northbound in years, nice way to go if you don't mind the sun in your face !
