Pinky - PCT - Jun 15, 2011 - To The Trees
Well the vortex finally released its hold enough to allow us to escape today
and we are back on trail. It was tough to leave...Joe and Terrie are
fantastic and Casa de Luna was a round the clock hiker party.

We had a few casualties in our group from the previous night so it was slow
getting out. Once at the trailhead it was too hot for the exposed climb so
we napped in the shade to try and recover a bit and wait out the heat. We
finally started out around 4:45pm and hiked 8 miles to our camp for the
night where we are currently set in a dry stream bed.

A couple of days ago my friend Vicki came on trail starting just a little
north of me. She hiked south for two days to meet up with me, where we will
now continue north together. We were able to find Vicki last night and bring
her to Casa de Luna so she could have that unique trail experience, it was a
fun way to kick off the start of her summer hike and a great way for her to
meet a lot of hikers at once. Vicki has 8 weeks to hike with me this summer
and it is great to have her out here, she still has the first days on trail
excitement which is really uplifting to be around!

Again very happy to be back on trail and heading north! I am still loving
the trail in southern california so much more than I ever expected, but I am
also ready to move out of the desert and into the trees!
