Left big bear today and got a ride up to the van dusen trail head in a Swiss army truck....pretty cool. The day was very easy. Lots of level and downhill hiking. Went through a long burndown section , was kind of depressing. At the end of the day I had two river fords and slipped on the first one. Completely dunked under, and got a nice cut on my leg in the process. Hasn't been a good week for injuries, but tomorrow we have a hot springs on the trail....will be nice to soak.
