The end of the desert is in sight!

written May 31, 2017 @ 04:20 AM after hiking 29.88 miles

Another day, another thirty -- sort of. We did 29.88 miles, but water was 0.25 miles each way off the trail, and camping was another 0.2 miles.

However, those weren't PCT miles, so they don't really count. Whatever, we still did a lot of miles and tomorrow, we'll officially be done with the desert!

We weren't planning on doing this many miles today, but it was cloudy, so I reminded Peanut of the old saying:

Make hay when the sun shines.

And the addition for the desert:

And when it doesn't, make miles.

So, we took advantage of the cooler, cloudy, and eventually rainy weather and just did a lot of miles.

How to make miles: start at sunrise. Or before.

Rain coming up the valley

25% done already? :-(

So pretty, and the cooler hiking was wonderful.
