July 19: Summit Lake to Shelter Cove on Odell Lake (PCT mile 1890.1 to 1806.2)

Today will be a hike up through the Diamond Peak area and then down to Shelter Cove, where I pick up my resupply, get a shower, do laundry and have a beer and real food.

I woke up to fog on the lake:

The Diamond Peak area is the second most beautiful area so far (second only to Crater Lake).

I spotted a piliated woodpecker, the largest woodpecker in this area, but he bolted before I could snap a photo.

Not pretty flowers

I arrived at Shelter Cove by noon and had a great shower, washed clothes, recharged my electronics and had good food and beer.

Life is good!

Thanks for reading!
