Posted on May 12, 2019May 19, 2019 by BrontideRobPCT 2019 Day 45 Mile 545 to 567 Winds. Winds well beyond predicted earlier in the week. NOAA issued a high wind warning with gusts to 50 mph. Of course, we didn’t know that until later that evening in Tehachapi. That explained my wind-burned face! Oh, and plenty cold! Not at all like most PCT hikers experience in this section of the trail.
