I slept in! Big soft bed! I finally got up at 7 and showered, cleaned my gear and packed up. Hawkeye slept in the whole time — noise does not bother him.
We went to the lodge for breakfast and I then caught a ride back to the trail. Hawkeye and two others who arrived last evening, Booboo and AJ, decided to hike up the road and catch the trail further on.
It was a hot day with a lot of up, but not nearly as much as yesterday. The trail would Crest a ridge and dip into the saddle before the next ridge. Often those saddles were lush meadows
I saw Mt. Lassen again- I’m getting closer!
The views were great as usual
And I saw some different flowers
At about 5:30 I arrived at the edge of the ravine that drops down to the North Fork of the Feather River and the small down of Beldon.
I had dinner then found that I have a strong cell signal here, so I decided to cowboy camp (no tent) here tonight and catch up on my bloods.
The warm breeze has cooled down and I got to see a nice sunset.
Thanks for reading!
