August 7, 2011

Start: 1447
End: 1478

As expected, Northern California has given us a lot of forested hiking, today being no exception. The good thing about being the Pacific CREST Trail, is that often times the trees part to give way to fantastic vistas. This morning we had numerous views of
Mt Shasta before descending once again into the trees.

Due to a slight miscalculation, we need to hike about 60 miles over the next two days to make it to Castella around 6pm Monday. We got a bit of a late start, and so only did 31 today, but hopefully we can start earlier tomorrow in order to get to town early enough to pick up our resupply package from a local business, and make our way to a bed and breakfast that is owned and operated by 12 Ounces great-aunt.

That said, it's fast approaching hiker midnight, I'm exhausted, my feet are tired, and I have many miles to do tomorrow before town.
