I caught up with my friends Breakaway and Sheppard after a few days of not seeing many NoBo hikers. This can be the case when walking between bubbles of hikers on the PCT. Breakaway, being from around the area, mentioned he was taking a side trip up South Sister and welcomed me to join himself and Sheppard on the adventure. We had been seeing incredible views of the Three Sisters for a couple days so I thought, why not?!? Round trip it was about 13 miles of additional hiking from the PCT and well worth every step!
