a journey of 2,652 miles
THE PACIFIC CREST TRAIL
starts with a single step.
Miles 1302.8 to 1325.1 (22.3 Miles) Warner Valley Campground to Soldier Creek camp
As usually, we don't make it out of camp before 7am. Today first we have to climb the other side of the valley, where we slept at.
It is not too bad and we are done in about one hour. Next we pass two massive hotsprings - it looks kind of cool to see al this bubbels and steam coming out of them! The air is now full of sulfide and spells like rotten eggs...
Shortly after, we reach the boundary sprifng, which marks the southern end of Lassen Volcanic national park and decide to have our breakfast here. By the time now, we start running low on breakfastt - but that's ok since we both are sick of it anyways.
We are now officially no longer In the park. Although the park is famouse for its high amount of bears we didn't see a single one...
Now the terran becomes way flatter and it's mostly downhill. After a while we take a breaks to filter some more water at the north fork kern river, where we actually meet two other hikers.
It's aour thrid last day on the trail now, which feels very strange. In a week we will fly home!
Even though we didn’t get up very early today, we still make good miles and reach the highway to the town of Chester at 5:30pm.
And there is trailmagic! We find a couple of beers and take a longer break than we actually planned. But at some point, we have to hike on. It is still 3.5 miles and it's all uphill from here.
But after 1.5 exhausting hours, we reach our camp spot in the woods. It is located next to a small creek. It is now 7pm and time for cooking dinner, watching some netflix movies and since we have signal here - check for new messages. From here it,s only 40 more miles to Belden, our final destination. Crazy!!
