Day 51, June 4. ~26 mi.
Comfy in tent, almost 9 pm. Was a most enjoyable day! I slept fantastic last night in my little foresty sheltered spot until 6 AM, even had a coffee and hiked starting at 6:45. Lots camped here. Wired, Top Shelf, Blister, Mark and Holly, Stumbling Goat and Thumper (honeymoooners), and another couple.
Pretty and rolling landscape- high desert and small forests and meadows. I saw a deer (finally) and lots of quail and squirrels. I almost forgot my sunglasses which fell off my pack when I took it off at Bird Spring. I had to drop my pack and backtrack downhill for them, but I got em! Later I lost my PCT bandanna at a creek, I know exactly where, I tried backtracking but realized it was further. Some of the group I’ve been leapfrogging came up on me but they didn’t take it. Shoot, hopefully somebody will. I sure get forgetful when distracted by books on tape! Note to self: find a sharpie and write my name on everything. I really enjoyed listening to my Patrick O’Brian books all day. I will try charging my phone with the charger Rockin’ gave me!
I hope no weather moves in, but I found a pretty nice sandy and sheltered campsite. Top Shelf and Wired must be a little bit ahead still. I have a downhill in the AM so should try to catch them.
