PCT Oregon, PCT Thru Hike / 20.07.2018

At mile 2089.5. Hiked 24.9 miles today. Near the end of the day as I crested a hill, I was rewarded for pushing through sore muscles with a stunning view of Mt Hood. When I wake up tomorrow morning and finish hiking my first half mile, I’ll have hiked 1650 miles and have 1000 miles remaining.  The morning was tough.

At mile 2014.8. Hiked 19.7 miles today. Having eaten 2 meals at Big Lake Youth Camp I was still carrying most of the food from my resupply and my pack was heavy. I  had a very late start so I was hiking during the hottest part of the day on a hot day. Not only that, I had also started late the day and hiked through exposed burns and lava fields, so this was the 2nd day in a row of intense heat. Shortly after crossing Hwy 20 at Santiago...
