PCT North California / 25.06.2018

Under At mile 1566.1. Hiked 21.8 miles today. I slept late, relaxed some and laid in my tent enjoying a bright red sunrise over Mt Shasta, while eating my triple pack of Raisins and Spice Oatmeal, 2 Strawberry frosted Pop Tarts, and cold Folgers coffee. Even after all that lounging around I was on the trail at 6:36 am and had done 10 miles by 10:10 am. The trail wound between and around mountains. With new views around every corner and new and varied wildflowers the walk was interesting....

At mile 1544.3. Hiked 23.2 miles today. The trail was a series of ups and downs in the morning which did its damage early causing my legs to be sore later in the day on much easier trail.

Can you find the little patch of...

I also took several cooling off breaks to prevent the heat from causing problems. The steepest part of the climb over, I finally reached a small creek where I filled my water bottles and took a long recovery lunch. The day was spent climbing up and around Castle Crag. Here are some photos...

At mile 1503.2. Hiked 4.9 miles today. I crossed the Sacramento River shortly before reaching Interstate-5 where I hitched a ride to Mt Shasta.  The river just springs from the rocks not far upstream. Rivers here have a tendency of springing from rocks. Here is a trail register I signed with my Uphillhikes logo. I walked all over town shopping for resupply and feeding myself. I tried for a barber, but as I learned Bret the town barber had flexible hours. In other words if he wanted to fish or go...
