WILD LIFE - SIERRA NEVADA, CALIFORNIA, USA
Mule deer are one of the most commonly seen wildlife species in the Sierra Nevada region. Adults usually reach a length of 5 or 6 feet and a weight of up to 200 lbs. The name mule deer is in reference to their large ears that resemble those of a mule.
Although males (bucks) and females (does) look similar, males are generally bigger than females and during the summer and fall seasons, the males have antlers. Deer live throughout the Sierra Nevada in the summer months (from the high mountains to the low foothills), but generally migrate to lower elevations in the winter where there is little or no snow.
In 2019 I thru-hiked every mile of the Pacific Crest Trail from North to South in 108 days.
The Pacific Crest Trail (PCT), officially designated as the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail, is a long-distance hiking and equestrian trail closely aligned with the highest portion of the Cascade and Sierra Nevada mountain ranges, which lie 100 to 150 miles (160 to 240 km) east of the U.S. Pacific coast. The trail's southern terminus is just south of Campo, California by the U.S. border with Mexico, and its northern terminus is on the Canada–US border on the edge of Manning Park in British Columbia; it passes through the states of California, Oregon, and Washington.
The Pacific Crest Trail is 2,653 mi (4,270 km) long and ranges in elevation from just above sea level at the Oregon–Washington border to 13,153 feet (4,009 m) at Forester Pass in the Sierra Nevada. The route passes through 25 national forests and 7 national parks. Its midpoint is near Chester, California (near Mt. Lassen), where the Sierra and Cascade mountain ranges meet.
