This next section is going to be interesting -- I have a visitor! A friend from my pre-PCT life is going to be hiking with me and I can't wait. It's going to be fun to show her what it's like out here and what it means to hike all day long.
After a breakfast at a local bakery, it's time to hit the trail and get in some miles.
Shortly after hitting the trail, Jessica got a crash course in what the PCT has been like: snow, steep hillsides, and routing around impassable sections.
After almost five miles, we decided to call it a day and set up camp. Long day tomorrow, though -- these miles won't hike themselves!
