With a start date of May 17th, it was the section of the PCT I dreaded most, the desert. Long winding trails thru sand, rattlesnakes, and an unrelenting sun.
It's been filled with long stretches of very high temperatures and very little water. To be sure the 652 miles covered have been challenging, physically and mentally.
There have been points of great beauty.
There has been examples of trail angel magic and kindness. In desert communities like Julian, Warner Springs and Wrightwood. Trail Angel homes, Ziggy and the Bear, Hiker Heaven and Casa de Luna. In individuals like Legend, and many I am ashamed to say, I don't have names for...
A last look back... And a thank you, for all I have seen, all I have felt , all I have met.....
It's time to move on to the next part of the journey, the majestic Sierra's. The Sierra's, loved so, by John Muir.
As always, thank you for reading,
Rabbit on the PCT
