"Do you see over yonder, friend Sancho, thirty or forty hulking giants? I intend to do battle with them, and slay them". Don Quixote

Tehachapi Pass, would have caused even the fabled Knight Errant pause.
This windmill farm is one of the oldest in California. I passed under the towering giants, fighting powerful winds, fatigue and a bit of sleep deprivation.

Another long day of hiking in the desert, followed by a longer night in my tent being pounded by the winds that feed the massive wind turbines.

A moment of reflection, after the epic battle with the hulking giants.

Tehachapi and a visit with family. My cousins beauty rivals that of the lovely Dulcinea del Toboso.

At mile 566 , today I return to the trail in search of adventure, worthy of a Knight Errant. But willing to enjoy a day of simplicity, suitable to Sancho Panza😊

Rabbit on the PCT


  1. Glad to hear that you have conquered the Mojave Desert. Now, to the mountains. Wishing you we here in the river with the other pescadors! We are waste-deep in the cool waters of the American, our wrists and arms are weak from catching so many fish in one afternoon. Tight Lines will come to you, soon enough.

  2. I love you Juny and I am so grateful that we got to spend time together ��
