Mariette Beaudoin Hiking, 2018-04-28 01:00:32. We entered the Sierra Nevada on June 11 in a very heavy snow year so we spent about a month hiking through snow sometimes only getting down below snow level in the evening to camp. I had very little experience hiking in deep snow and no experience navigating when the trail was covered with snow most of the day. Mostly we did it with map and compass but we did use a GPS some to pinpoint the trail location and to confirm which was the right pass a few times. I had crampons at the beginning of the Sierras but soon lost them off the back of my pack before I ever used them. One thing we didn‘t have to worry about was water. We got spoiled by only having to carry a liter or two of water. We often drank directly from springs and the snow melt streams without bothering to treat the water.

It might just be a small thing but when the heat is baking then putting the bottom of the legs into the pack and getting on with the hiking does feel great.

The sun cups were one of the biggest problems along with post holing in the soft snow in the afternoons. Almost everyone used trail running shoes except the Europeans who wore mountaineering boots. We had wet feet the whole way through the Sierras from the snow and river crossings and much of Washington from the rain and new snow but surprisingly it wasn‘t much of a problem. We did get tired of the snow and needing to be constantly on the search for the trail. I would like to go back and hike the John Muir Trail (most of which is the same as the PCT) in the fall when you can actually walk on the trail.

If you are sure there will be water at your destination carry just slightly more than sufficient water to last until you arrive. Water is of greater importance than food to your survival. Always filter any water you find along the trail and that you are in need of using - unless the water is from a natural spring. If you can fix a long drinking straw to the water bottle so you can drink as you move the better.

There may also be special guidelines such as a one-piece swimsuit for girls no speedos for the boys etc. I remember one youth pastor telling the youth to place their swimsuit on the stove-top burner and if it doesn‘t cover it completely just turn on the burner and go buy something more modest. If the summer youth camp offers crafting opportunities you may want to send along some clothes that are not new. Painting and crafts can be messy and are not the easiest thing to remove from clothes. Also don‘t forget rain gear. Summer youth camps don‘t curtail every activity just because it may be raining.

Even when hiking over a mountain there is always the risk that a broken chunk of mountainous terrain might fall right on top of you and your helmet will protect your head from damage.
