Apr 24 & 25
The flights to San Diego went well and I arrived at Scout & Frodo’s place just after lunch. What a great place to start the trip!
20mi – Border to Lake Morena
Started the adventure at 7am. It was an amazing feeling to be there and start walking north.
13mi – Cibbet’s Flat
21mi – Pioneer Picnic Area
Stopped in Mt. Laguna in the morning for breakfast. Nice little mountain town. The views really opened up in the aft.
18mi – Rodriguez Rd. crossing
18mi – Tentsite @86.6mi
Stopped in Julian for some free pie. Nice little town. The weather is turning cooler and windy.
15mi – Tentsite @101.1mi
Passed the 100mi mark today! Feels good. I’m also starting to feel a bit less sore at the end of the day…
8mi – Warner Springs
Short hike this morning in a light rain. Taking the rest of the day to rest up and get clean.
It’s been an awesome hike so far. I’ve met some great people, and the scenery has been beautiful. The weather hasn’t been the best, but that’s ok. I’m looking forward to the next section of trail!
