We started our day with another shared breakfast and game of Carcassonne, then drove south to the trail head
Liz hiked with me into the Castle Crags area for 4 miles before returning to the car and driving home. It sure was nice spending the weekend with her! I’m off of my own again.
Castle Crags is a beautiful place and has a very nice trail: clear of vegetation, not too steep and lots of great views:
I found a new flower
And a friendly Gopher Snake
I camped up on a ridge with views of Shasta to the east and Lassen to the south. My feet feel great!
Only 80 miles to my next resupply in Etna.
Thanks for reading!
