Section Hikers - Pacific Crest Trail, Sky Lakes Wilderness, Oregon

Weekend backpackers on the Badger Lake Trail (Near the PCT) heading out to Island Lake in the Sky Lakes Wilderness.

 

It is interesting that you can always tell weekend backpackers from PCT through hikers (and long section hikers) because the weekender's backpacks are so much bigger and heavier. The long distance hikers really pare down their loads.

 

I know this from experience - when Margo and I go backpacking it seems like we are carrying every thing we might possibly need - very heavy loads. I'd love to get ultralight.
