PCT South California, PCT Thru Hike / 23.04.2018

Hiked 21.8 miles today. At mile 482.4. It was a day for the critters. Got stung by 2 bees and saw my 3rd Rattlesnake. The snake was hiding in a bush beside the trail and rattled when I passed. I l also saw the largest lizard so far, 12 inches; it seems the hotter it gets, THe larger the lizards grow. The morning started with the most beautiful green mountain meadows I had  seen on this hike. Upon crossing a mountain ridge, the landscape changed to a hot dry landscape...

They don’t really start hurting until you start warming them. As long as my feet are being used they are okay, but when...

PCT South California, PCT Thru Hike / 21.04.2018

Hiked 26.3 miles today. At mile 427. It was a cold night and windy, but I was so worn out that I went to sleep soon after I ate. The climbing and the weight of my pack has piled on these last 3 days so that for the first time in a while, my legs are sore. I got an early start a little before 7 am and before long it started snowing! This was a complete surprise since I had not seen this forecasted. Eventually the clouds lifted enough...
