a journey of 2,652 miles
THE PACIFIC CREST TRAIL 2018
starts with a single step.
Miles 109.5 to 124.9. Warner Springs to bushcamp.
Such a fun night yesterday and a surprisingly good sleep in tent city! Unfortunately there is still no water when we get up. So no shower, no laundry. We are still as dirty as before we arrived in Warner Springs. But there is supposed to be a creek with water soon so we quickly pack our packs and get going.
We make good time, it‘s rather flat in the meadows and it‘s still cloudy and thus not too hot. We soon arrive at the creek and wash our clothes (and Dario ;-)) in it. The sun has now come out and our clothes are already drying. We start walking up and down again, there are a lot of green bushes and trees and we find a nice shady spot to have lunch. This is so awesome! Dario makes us mashed potatoes and mac‘n‘cheese and we are having the best lunch break. It‘s Mother‘s Day and we call our moms to wish them well. :-)
We continue hiking around 3pm and I start listening to an audio book. Times flies by this way and it‘s awesome to be listening to an interesting story but still take in the beautiful surroundings. It feels very serene. Dario soon is way ahead of me, we only meet again at our designated campsite for the night. It‘s still light out and we quickly set uo camp to enjoy dinner (Mountain House Pad Thai for me and some Mexican bean dish for Dario) in the last rays of sun. It‘s the most beautiful campsite so far and we are very aware of how privileged we are right there and then.
