Happy - PCT - Jun 4, 2013 - Lake Water
The water from yesterday's lake got me thorough the dry miles today. This was my first lake water of the trip and markedly different from the tasty spring water yesterday.

I listened to some music on the trail for the first time. It was a nice change of pace.

I'm at a hotel at I-15 tonight. Busy getting ready for the next 100 miles. Looking for Dude - I expected to see him here...
