Barrel Springs to Warner Springs
Mile 101.1 – Mile 109.5
Today the trail relaxed into a smooth path through rolling hills and grassland. Lucky for me and my tired body, circumstances have conspired to ease my way. I only had to make about 8.5 miles to Warner Springs and an enforced timeout to await my next resupply box when the post office opens tomorrow at 8am
I know the first bestest angel, trail or otherwise, had something to do with it. My mom is the support crew at home sending boxes and I think she knew her boy needed a break today. Thanks Momma, Happy Mother’s Day, I love you!
Here’s to the mothers in my life! I think we can all agree we would not be without them. I raise my EmergenC infused water bottle to you. Salud!
The difference in the trail today helped distract me from my stubborn foot pain. I encountered yet another touchstone of the PCT, Eagle Rock. It does not take much imagination to see it.
After navigating my way through a herd of cows, the way descended into an idyllic, shaded watercourse into finally depositing me in Warner Springs.
The community center, here, staffed by volunteers, becomes a haven for hikers this time of year. I had a bucket shower, did bucket laundry, and took advantage of their free wifi. It’s pretty great hear music and spend an afternoon lounging about.
Note- Yesterday’s post was delayed due to a lack of connectivity as I am sure future ones will be too.
