Idyllwild, CA to Agua Dulce, CA [Mile 454]

I have great news!

Estero and I bought a bigger house:

We are now proud owners of a Lightheart SoLong6.

Finally.

No more sharing a tiny tent. No more climbing over Estero to pee at night, and no more awkward yoga poses while packing gear in the morning.

Sorry for my lack of updates lately. Honestly, blogging has slipped to the last thing on my “to-do” list, and by the time I get to it, I’m just too tired.

Everything is going wonderfully. We are cruising along, and this section of the PCT has been incredible! I have really managed to love the desert. 🙂

So much has happened since I last updated.. We took 3 days off and attended ADZPCTKO (kick-off!), and had a great weekend catching up with friends.

We climbed San Jacinto peak recently– 10,900 feet. In one long day, we saw snow and cactus. The peak still had remains of snow tucked away in shady spots.

I worry about the snow that we may encounter in the Sierras. We should be there in a couple weeks, and I hope that we aren’t too early.

Here is a tiny glimpse into the latest section:

    Acorn — As just quit my 60-hour a week newspaper job, I’ve finally had time to relax and catch up on lots of stuff seemingly permanently pushed to the side like back issues of AT Journeys, the Appalachian Trail Conservancy magazine from March-April of this year (that has Mt. Katahdin on the cover) — and YOU, Acorn, are on pictured on page 24 in article on 2000-milers, standing on your head at the AT halfway point in Harpers Ferry, WV.

    I’m headed out (from Texas) to Trail Days this weekend in Damascus, I’ll see if I can grab an extra copy and mail it to you and Estero.

    Best,

    Darius
