Day 74: Mile 1255 (30)
My first 30 plus day on the pct. The snow has let up, and the
afterburners are firing. We passed several flip floppers today...
People that flipped up to Ashland. They said snow was bad up near
Oregon border, but that was several weeks ago. It was very hot today,
and is supposed to be for a while. This is great news for whatever
snow might be hanging around. As far as today, we hiked 30, and only
touched snow twice. We never lost trail, and our feet were dry all
day! Now that is a good day. We are going to try a few big mile days
so that we can hit Chester on Thursday afternoon. Chester is at the
halfway point, so there will be ice cream involved. We are sleeping
tonight at 3500 feet. I can't remember the last time I was that low.
