PCT mile 635.33 to 652.00
I forgot to show you as historical, cultural artifact next to where we camped: a Native American mortero where acorns were ground. This is as particularly interesting because there are few Oak trees in this area now.
Today Medic and I will hike down from our current ridge, across a flattish mesa and then down, down, down to Walker Pass. When we were literally out of the woods we got a great view of the snow capped Sierra Nevada mountains
When I got all the way down to Walker Pass I ran into Hannah and Carley– two PCT hikers turned Trail Angels! They had fresh Pizza and cold sodas! I love these ladies!
As I was finishing my lunch two local drove up and introduced themselves and asked if Medic and I were PCT hikers. We replied and introduced ourselves and were surprised to find out these guys were our local contact Greg Watson and his hiking buddy Dan. Greg saw me as he parked but told Dan “No, that can’t be Dale, he’s heavier and has less of a beard”. 🙂
Thanks for reading!
