Day 9: Mile 168 (20)

Location: Nice Sheltered (from wind) Campsite Before Apache Peak.

Today started out with a let down. The famous Paradise Cafe that all pct hikers visit, was closed. I was really looking forward to this place. Guess it might reopen under new management. Anyway, the rest
of the day was amazing. Lots of climbs, but also lots of ridgeline hiking. San Jacinto and it's snow look ominous in the distance.  Tomorrow, I will tackle a 10 mile snowy section and head into  idyllwild. Woo hoo. Soooo glad to have my 15 degree bag tonight.

Today also marks an important date, for it was exactly 3 years ago that I set foot off of springer mountain on my quest to hike 2174 miles north to Mt. Katahdin.  What a fitting way to celebrate my 3 year anniversary of that life changing be out doing another long hike.
