PCT Backpack trip - Sierra City to Bucks Lake

Tony and I drove up to resume Tony's mult-year thru hike of the Pacific Crest Trail. Our starting point was Sierra City and my ending point was Bucks Lake, where I was to say good-bye to Tony and go home alone. It didn't work out quite that way as Tony seems to be having trouble eating on the trail. He ended up coming home with me. It was a lovely trip anyway, although a tad too short. I have some pictures.
