As someone who would love to work my way through at least part of the PCT at some point, this was an awesome read! Some pretty breathtaking photos here, thank you so much for sharing.

Any clue what the small white flowers/plants in the first picture of Section 4 are? They're gorgeous and vaguely ghostly.

Those are Beargrass, scientific name Xerophyllum tenax. I forgot to share, but I also made a Google Photos album of a not-quite-exhaustive collection of flowers I saw.
