MotherGoose - PCT - Apr 13, 2011 - Leaving Glendale Ax
Well here I am traveling east to go West. I can not tell you what a treasure LaZorra has been to me, I hope I was a good enough guest that she isn't singing " Thank God and Greyhound she's gone". Again thank you Liz for your generous hospitality. Now about the ankle, it is better not completely healed but better, I hope to take it easy for a few days and then pick it up. I have lots of medicine and I'm not afraid to take it ;) I haven't seen Nikki in a long time so I'm looking forward to that, tomorrow I catch the train at Deming NM and Friday I'll be in CA. I'm excited to be back on the PCT I really like that trail. Not near the rough stuff that is the GET. So happy trails and LaZorra h you can hike with me anytime.
