Day 2 few mi before Hauser Cyn Creek to Lake Morena

Day two. we woke up before Houser Canyon at our little sandy camp spot around mile 12 maybe we had a late start. We met Kay and Patty who came by in the morning! we got our stuff together made it down to Houser creek got some water got a little lost on the S. Boundary Rd. cut across picked up the trail and went through the gnarly hot hot hot switchbacks up I don’t know 1000 feet something really hot long Way up to top beautiful scenic views !!
At top found shade Annie rested had snack. I went on as my water way low- i drink 4x as much as her. made it to lake marina campground where we had left our extra food thanks to the nice rangers in the station! Mike took us here on the way to the border. spent all day resting and taking care of Annie’s sleeping bag problem thanks to numerous PCT trail angels and she is now friends with all the PCT badasses, go Annie! Scout let her borrow a bag for her month duration wow! That’s trail magic baby! Bob, “hayduke” found me resting and said “I don’t suppose you’re Wandering Dot?” He’d seen me on Postholer.com.
We had to stay the night at lake marina campground not my goal on a Saturday night Noisey yucky RV campers but everything was fine met some other through hikers and had a decent night sleep. lots of condensation in the tent this morning though we had a slow morning but got hiking At 8:40 all is well
