June 3: Bucks Lake to the rim above the North Fork of the Feather River — PCT mile 1261 to 1279

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!
