PCT South California, PCT Thru Hike / 27.04.2018

Day 31 Flipped to Walker Pass and hiking south toward Hikertown. Hiked south 15.3 PCT miles. At mile 628.5. At Mcgiver Cabin the annual one week outting of Kenny Majors and friends was taking place. Kenny’s family had built the cabin on land that it had mineral rights for. His family has been visiting for generations. The group is very welcoming to PCT hikers and offered myself and others to share their breakfast. Even though I already had my morning oatmeal, I joined the group for 2 plates of scrambled eggs,...

Flipped to Walker Pass and hiking south toward Hikertown. Hiked 8.3 PCT miles. At mile 643.8. I decided to flip, or skip forward and hike back.

The reason I’ve flipped is that I plan to fly back to Atlanta for a few weeks and with cousin Margaret’s help, it is more convenient and predictable to get to LAX airport from Hikertown, than Walker...

After devouring the 2 Burger King whoppers she brought me (credit to Cousin Ed for the hamburger idea) and saving apples and veggies with hummus dip for afternoon snack (credit to Cousin Kate for that trail magic idea), we drove to Lancaster for shower, laundry, more...

PCT South California, PCT Thru Hike / 24.04.2018

Today I hiked 20 miles.At mile 502.4. The PCT is always surprising me. Nearing th Mojave valley, I expect to walk through desert and I did for a short while in the morning, but everything quickly changed as I began to move into trees. I saw a greater diversity of plant life here on the edge of the Mojave. Here is so sort of weeping pine Inhad not seen until now. Here is an arid view in the morning. As I drew closer to the Mojave desert, everyuaround me greened  up...
