a journey of 2,652 miles
THE PACIFIC CREST TRAIL
starts with a single step.
Miles 1234.1 to 1241.8 (7.7 Miles) Burney Falls Campground to Burney
What a great night last night was! We feel a bit hungover now, but slept well. All the NOBOs expect for Flamin' Hot and the French couple Alix and Maxime already left. We pack up and head over to the store for breakie. Ice cream and pepperoni sausage for us. We talk some more to Flamin' Hot, bit reluctant to say our goodbyes. But Flamin' Hot already told us that he might come visit us in Switzerland already in August. How awesome would that be!!! Please come visit us, we would love to have you!!
We then have to go, Burney, and a zero day is waiting for us. It was a quick reunion, but we are so glad it happened, and that we met some many other awesome people last night as well. We will never forget our time at the Burney Falls.
It's now only another 7.7 miles to Burney. We are fast and excited for our zero. We book a room at the Shasta Pines Motel on the way and are told to call them again once we get to the trailhead. They would then come to get us. Wow!
The room is not ready yet, so next stop McDonalds. Followed by shower, laundry, phone calls with family, resting, resupply, resting some more. Finally we order some pizza and watch some Friends while drinking red wine and eating dinner. Tomorrow we will spend another full day in Burney, go to the library to do some administrative work and sleep in the World of Life church for free. How good it feels to be sleeping in a bed, freshly showered. It really is the best feeling! At home I don't ever appreciate a moment like this. But after hiking and living outside for multiple days, without a shower, with filthy clothes, this is the best feeling ever. Gotta love those zero days!
