CALIFORNIA - Mile 41.5 - 59.5 // 18 miles
Happy Mothers Day!
For most of the day the trial followed a ridge which led to some spectacular views. The weather is improving, no rain today - yay! The AT and PCT are very different for many reasons one of which is that there are no shelters on the PCT. I typically didn't stay in the shelters, because my hammock was so comfortable, but I loved that they grouped people together. After a long day od hiking alone, it was nice to get to a camp ground and talk with other hikers. Out here, virtually anywhere can become a camp spot so people are much more spread out. It's taken some getting used to, but now I realize why everyone says that the AT is the social trail.
Hoping for some more nice trail tomorrow.
