Hello from Idyllwild!!
Estero and I started the PCT on a beautiful day last week.
It is wonderful to be hiking again. 5 months of hiking with a sweet boy? Yes, please. 🙂
I am feeling very, very lucky.
We are doing great so far — the miles are coming easily, and only 2 (healed) blisters for me. Estero’s feet are still perfect.
I have quickly learned that hiking in the desert is completely different than the AT or FT. The terrain is easier (steady ups and no rocks!!), but the heat and sun has forced us to seek shelter in the shade for a long lunch break. I am trying my best to stay hydrated, but it’s hard, sometimes.
Sorry for such a quick update. We’re heading to resupply and have a long day ahead as we climb to 10,000 feet (San Jacinto).
From the desert to the snow.
Hope you enjoy these photos:
(Can’t wait to buy a bigger tent next week) 🙂
