I am doing the usual after hike chores--replacing a pole tip, sorting out unused food, compiling maps, downloading pics, repairing tears. I will return in two weekends to camp at Crescent City with friends and hike from Stout Grove to the Pacific Ocean. I found out that everything is closed down there from Stout Grove north, which would include the Little Bald Hills and the Paradise Trail. I have numerous waypoints from the BFT for water sources, junctions, other points of interest and more detailed trail notes that I will post section by section, probably in Dropbox so anyone can download them. I need to finish the 55 mile section from Poker Flat to the Paradise Trail on the South Fork of the Smith River. I am also toying with the idea of doing the 23 mile roadwalk from Hayfork to Junction City that I took the bus around during the fires. I kind of liked the Timberjack Motel. I also id'ed 25 of the 32 conifers, and look forward to seeing the rest whenever I can get into the Siskiyou Wilderness, since now I know a good way into the Poker Flat Trailhead by car. Don't hesitate to contact me with any questions. I recommend this trail (even though I am somewhat of a whiner in the trail journal, I'm just not the cheerleader type) for those wanting to see little visited places in NW California and in Oregon and become familiar with the amazing array of conifers we are blessed with in this region. It's always an adventure going out there--never exactly what you planned, which is what I like. I met some fabulous people who really helped me--esp. Phil Kearney and Pat Anderson during the Hayfork Fire debacle. And thanks to old friends who continue to come to my assistance--esp. Dianne Keller, Alice Levey.

I am planning to finish the Hayduke trail next spring and then maybe finish the CDT or do the PNT next summer, undecided at this time.
