A late start today, I was the last one out at 10:00 am. I walked beside Aloha Lake, marveling at the stillness of the water, feeling the heat of the sun. Today would be another scorcher for sure. Toward the end of the lake, I saw two little boys paddling around the many rock formations […]Read more "PCT Day 25: Heatwave"

Squarepants and I dawdled in camp until Fish Nugget arrived. She seemed to be in better spirits today, thank goodness. The girls […]Read more "PCT Day 21: Almost There"
Icky came over to chit-chat at camp last night. Talkative and entertaining, she didn’t ask me a single question. I find that so odd. Like, how can you have a conversation with another human being and not ask them anything? Am I that boring? I got up and headed out onto the trail ahead of […]Read more "PCT Day 19: Trail People"
