Poodle Dog Bush Identification: If I had only known sooner………

I recently received this comment and attachment from Eric R. It was in response to a post I made during the PCT last May, relating to my experiences with the Poodle Dog Bush. With the PCT season just around the corner, I thought it in the best interests of all 2013 hikers to pass along this timely message. Always remember: Prevention is better than cure. Thank you for your input, Eric. 

If you are going to venture into areas where Poodle Dog Bush may be present, it’s important to know how to identify it. Here Is what it looks like (click on the link below):

  1. Thank goodness for poodle dog bush. Funny how one man’s misfortune is another man’s blessing. If not for the infamous Poodle Dog Bush I would not have had the fine pleasure of meeting you Mr. Honan. We need to hike the High Sierra trail together sometime Cam. The way you spoke of it I’m sure you will be out here to hike it again at some point. The things you do are very inspirational, but even more inspirational is the passion which drives you! Keep on keepin on Cam!

    • Great to hear from you, Joe! Thanks for your kind words. Hanging out with you guys was definitely the highlight of my Poodle Dog-induced stay in Ridgecrest! Yep, a return trip on the Sierra High Route could very well be on the cards. Probably my favourite hike in the lower 48 states.

      Take care,
