Day 91 - 6/28/18 (flip SOBO from Ashland, OR to Lone Pine, CA)
July 9, 2018
Mile 1350.3 to 1328.0 for 22.24 miles with an elevation increase of 3056 and decrease of 3271. Total PCT miles 1136.66. Hiking at 7:30 after divvying up our resupply box and noting we still have a lot of extra food. Into camp at 6:20 at the Soldier Creek tent sites. The trail was mostly in big timber and of good quality. Temperatures were nice. We crossed numerous dirt roads. In CA these roads are often wide enough for 2 lanes with shoulders! Many have up to 7 way intersections! We wonder about logging truck traffic jams. At camp we ran into Gustav aka “Swedish Sunshine” who we have not seen since the Deep Creek hot springs. We are beginning to tire of CA. Seems like it will never end. Got brief cell service while hiking so sent a text to Fawn letting her know we would connect in Belden about our Sierra City box.
