Day 89: Mile 1703.2 (34.6)
Today, after hiking 30 miles, we rounded a corner and came to the
small sign on a tree that marked the OR/CA border. I'm not sure how I
feel to finally be done with the 1700 miles of California. Partly
relieved, partly excited. I thought it was fitting that moments
before continuing on into Oregon, I was stung by a bumble bee...as if
it were cali's final FU to me. Tomorrow we head into Ashland where I
will probably take a day off. Definitely feeling a little homesick
tonight too...and a part of me wants to call it "done" here.
In Oregon...wow, still sounds weird.
