Day 80: Mile 1414 (36.3)
Broke my personal record today with a ridiculous 36 miles. I
purposely got up extra early as today was the notorious hat creek rim
section. This 25 mile bit is super hot, super exposed, and no water.
The hiking was pretty miserable, but it could gave been a lot hotter.
The cool part was the incredible views of both lassen and Shasta and
walking across lava beds. I had meant to camp sooner but the trail
went through a private land easement and I had to hike on to the natl
forest boundary. Broke 1400 today. Oregon is less 285 miles away.
I'm starting to think that it may actually exist after all. :-)
