I woke up to a very quiet and calm morning. I got up extra early so that I can make the four mile, dry, uphill lava crossing before it gets hot.
I got on the trail and was immediately accosted by another uncontrolled dog. Ugh.
I was alone on the lava crossing and early morning was a great time to go
It was slow going for me – the lava is hard on the feet.
I then descended a burn area into a meadow! I carried a bunch of extra water that I did not need (as usual).
I am headed to the Big Lake Youth Camp, a Christian summer camp for kids, that is super friendly to PCT hiker. By super friendly I mean they give us our own big A-Frame building with bathrooms, showers, kitchen, laundry and resupply! Oh, and free breakfast, lunch and dinner! Amazing!
So many new and old flowers too!
I got all caught up on my blogs! Hooray! After being well pampered, I camped in the PCT campsite near the lake.
Another great night, and I have a real breakfast awaiting me in the morning!
Thanks for reading!
