CALIFORNIA - June 1-8
It's been a wild and amazing start to the month of June!
On June 1st, we made it to the Anderson's or as it's better known, Casa de Luna. I'm feeling a little bit spoiled at this point with all the trail angles on this section of the trail. The Sauffley's and Anderson's are two of the most famous PCT enthusiasts on trail and are located only a few days apart from eachother.
The Anderson's backyard is an old Manzaneda forest, with a ton of tent sites built up by the thousands of hikers that have stayed there over the years.
Our next stop of trail was Hiker town. This is a small collection of buildings made for hikers as a refuge in the desert. It was a pretty bizarre place but a good location to have mail drops sent be used it' right on trail. The trail was nicely graded and mostly downhill coming into Hiker Town which was so nice because I basically ran the last 8 miles into town when I remembered the next Food Challenge package was waiting for me from Maggie!
Girl, thank you sooooooo much! The treats were phenomenal! Homemade granola bars and chocolate covered coffee beans (And all dairy free) sooooooo tasty! I hate to admit it, but I scarfed all the bars in one sitting :) I had enough self control though to save the espresso beans as little energy boosts for the night hike the following day. The homemade dehydrated apples and fruit leathers were an amazing touch too! We can never seem to get enough of that stuff out here. I can't wait to come and visit CO in the future :)
The following day we headed out of Hiker town in the evening and decided to night hike the next 17 miles to stay out of the heat.
Another week and we'll be heading into Kenedy Meadows, the gateway to the Sierra's!!! Trying to stay hydrated for now!
