PCT mile: 177
The plan was a Nero but hiked 11 miles because I wasn’t paying attention to my GPS. As a result, I was rewarded with a 4 1/2 hour friggin climb that my mind was not prepared for. That’s okay. I arrived in Idyllwild around 1pm and all is forgiven. Tom and I shared a 16″ pizza for lunch. Afterwards, I stopped by the grocery store for fresh fruit, granola, and yogurt. Oh, and chocolate milk for dessert. That was my dinner. Heaven!
Town pics tomorrow plus a little discussion about foot/shoe preparation. I’ve seen some pretty gnarly blisters and taped over a dozen feet. For Pete’s sake, if you’re going to put your feet through hell on earth, be prepared!!!!!
