Fantastic section of the PCT! Went the second weekend in July, 2018. No mosquitos from Chinook until the descent to Crag Lake. Then bam! ONCE YOU STOP, YOU ARE SWARMED BY THE TENS OF THOUSANDS. It was almost like a movie! Great ups and down. Strenuous but doable. We started on Friday night at 5:20 pm and camped at Anderson Lake. Then we took off at about 8:00 am and made it to just past the Twin Sisters (lakes) Trail by 7:00pm. Had to cross the Bumping River on a log that sits upstream by 50 meters. The following morning we hit the train at 8:00 am and made it to White Pass by Noon after a dip in Leechs Lake. A great trip with my son!
