Mile 77.3 to 109.5 was relatively short, but changed dramatically. Initially night hiking was essential to conserve water between dry stretches through the desert slopes.. the sunsets and sunrises were incredible though! This was followed by vast prairie landscapes and the occasional green oasis with massive oak trees providing shade along side cold streams for drinking and foot soaking. #pct #pct2019 #sunset #sunrise #nighthike #waterscarcity #eaglerock
Quite a day today! Started climbing out from Cajon Pass at around 3000 feet up to 8500 feet and the weather changed drastically as expected! From chaparral to snowy forest! In the afternoon the weather went from beautiful sunny skies to thick fog and wind. It got super cold and rime ice fell from tree tops making thud sounds in the spooky environment. 28.6 miles later we reached the road to hitch into Wrightwood only to find about 12 other people trying to hitch in. Luckily it only took about 30 minutes to get us all to town! There we couldn’t find anywhere to stay, hotels were super expensive so we sat outside the store calling trail angels when a man came up and asked where we were staying and since we didn’t have a spot yet he said we could all stay in his rental house. Us 5 and 4 others walked over to the house and it is amazing trail magic. We got to wash our clothes, take showers and now are all “cowboy camping” in the house. Trail magic at its absolute best!! Thanks to all you trail angels out there! #trailmagic #trailangels #pct #pct2019 #pacificcresttrail #hiking #thruhiking #thruhiker #sangabrielmountains #wrightwood #fmp #tramily #trailfamily
День 16, 20 км, осталось 4012 км - «Горы...»
🍂 Мои любимые горы... Ущелья, запах хвои, ветер, скалы...
🍂 Увидела живого оленя ☝️
🍂 Хоть и идти в гору, но мне значительно легче и роднее 😃
🍂 Побывала на марсе... последствия пожара 2013 года... Первая сказка - туман, деревья без листвы, пение птиц и ветерок... Может инопланетяне меня заберут для экспериментов? 🤔
🍂 Вторая сказка - лес Шир. Как будто я у хоббитов в гостях. Загадочная дорога на север... 😂
🍂 Сегодня день подарков красивой природы 😉 и здорово, что рядом такие же hiker-ы, с которыми можно разделить свой восторг... Именно этого мне так не хватало в Патагонии в начале... возможность «разделить эмоции»...
Today I see a real mystery forest in the my loves mountain 🏔 Like a Shery forest of hobbits... Fog and died trees... Beautiful

Day 26: Still fearing the weather we figured we should use the opportunity to get some gear we were missing. We took an Uber down to the REI in Rancho Cucomunga. For those who don't know, REI is a vortex that sucks hikers in, and drains them of money on gear they think they might possibly need in the future. Somehow we made I out without spending too much, I bought rain pants and a yaktrax for walking on ice. Dave and I passed out on the way back.
Once we got back to the hotel we quickly geared up and set off, it was a mile back to the trail. The trail started going up, crossing dirt paths and train tracks. A freight train passed by just after we crossed the tracks sk we stopped to watch.
As we got up on the ridge the wind started hitting us, 30+ mph winds trying to knock us off. We could see the clouds up on the ridge across from us and we weren't liking it at all.
We got to the water cache 6 miles in. To our surprise, Honeysticks, who left the trail at Warner springs for a week, caught up to us and was there. We debated trying to climb the ridge a bit and camp, but finally decided we would probably sleep better in the valley so that we have energy for the next day, a 22 miler with 6000 feet of climbing. We set up camp and gathered for dinner.
There's this funny thing that happens in the desert, the weather is directly affected by the time of day. If it's supposed to be stormy, as soon as the sun comes out, the clouds disperse, and the minute it's gone they return. Sure enough, as soon as I got into my tent and the sun went down, the rain started. Rain on your tent is really soothing and I fell asleep quickly.
Daily miles: 6
Total miles: 347
8시간 후면 pct 트레일로 들어가요. 3일 걷고 잠깐 요세미티 3일 놀러갔다가 다시 트레일 복귀하는 빡쎈 일정이라 이제 한달간 제로데이는 없을 예정입니다. LA 이소가스 왜 이렇게 없죠? 가스 못 구해서 3일은 건식으로 식사 해결합니다. 아마존에서 가스 시켜야겠어요🙄
혜원찌와 오늘도 햅삐 🎶
요즘 la 날씨가 이상해서 덜 뜨겁네요! 다행이쥬?
Day 54 - zero in Tehachapi
Lots of great food in Tehachapi ❤ was nice to sleep in a real bed again without rain and wind. Did our resupply and laundry. We said goodbye to BlingBling for now after we had a great dinner at Midori Sushi 😍 she's gonna take some weeks off like we will do in 6 days and hopefully see each other again 😀
Casa de Luna to Hikertown. It was an up and down day that went from just trying to find motivation to leave a motel room to pushing for 40 miles. The beautiful sunset was a fitting end to the day. With @projectmove_

SAN DIEGO, USA | 01 MAY - 14 MAY.
As some of you might know, I have been volunteering at Scout and Frodo’s for the last two weeks. For those who don’t know, Scout and Frodo are two trail angels in San Diego that between April and May this year, have taken in close to 1300 PCT hikers and given them the best start they could hope for as they embark their journeys on this great trail. It starts with picking you up from the train station/ airport / bus station and bringing you back to their home (where they will host up to 45 people a night). Once at their home, they give hikers a place to stay the night before they hike, provide useful information about the trail, tell wonderful trail stories that’ll have you in stitches, serve delicious food (which includes second helpings and dessert every night) and then they will drive you to the Southern Terminus of PCT in the morning. In short, they will restore your faith in humanity. Having experienced this magic last year, I was so incredibly happy to come back and help instead. It takes an army to do what Scout and Frodo do, and so here is also a shout out to all the amazing volunteers, the drivers, the people who cook us dinner, the neighbors that don’t get annoyed and everyone who supports what they do.
I’m also grateful for all the hikers I got to meet while here - who shared part of their stories with me. I’m cheering for you all!! Getting to spend every day with people who are just as nuts about this trail as you are is a rare thing. It’s like Scout says - its about finding the community you always wanted but never knew you needed.
