Hiker Heaven

written May 20, 2017 @ 04:09 AM after hiking 17.97 miles

After an 11-mile hike, I entered the very hot town of Agua Dulce -- the site of my next resupply. My package was waiting for me at this place which is aptly named Hiker Heaven. These people are sort of the original Trail Angels on the PCT, and they sure know what they're doing.

They had dogs! <3

And chickens!

And tired dogs!

After picking up my maildrop and sorting through it (thanks, everyone who sent me birthday wishes!) it was time to go to lunch and then buy for for the next section (Agua Dulce to Tehachapi).

In order to avoid getting sucked into the vortex and taking a zero there, Peanut and I pushed off around 5, in order to miss the heat of the day. We'd hoped to do some night hiking and go about 12 miles, but we wound up calling it quits after 8 or so.

Can't win 'em all.

Pretty sunsets, though!
