Today's another good day: I get to eat real food! After a short ten miles of hiking, my plan was to go into the tiny (extremely hiker-friendly) town of Trout Lake. I had a resupply package waiting for me there, and they also have a cafe there. Perfect.
Oddly enough, I showed up to the trailhead and there was a car about to depart with two other hikers. They agreed to give me a ride, and off we went. It turns out that I'd first meet these hikers (Cookie Monster and Laura (still no trail name for her)) back in Sierra City -- small world.
