PCT Mile: 369.4
I slept rather fitfully last night. The wind blew so hard that, at times, I felt that I was going to parachute away. But I am determined to stay in bed until the sun comes up.
Slowly, I broke camp trying to keep everything from blowing away while stuffing my pack. Since I had gone through 5 liters of water yesterday, I needed the remaining 1/2 liter to tie me over to Wrightwood. Yes, I’m going to Wrightwood!
I was thinking that 13 lbs of water off my back would make it easy to cover 5 miles. The pack was lighter, but I could tell my body was very tired. There was a little climb just out of camp, and I could feel the muscles in my neck and back start to spasm. My legs felt kinda like jello.
As I came over a crest, I could see Mt. Baden-Powell. The PCT takes you to the bottom then straight back up. Normally, I love that kind of challenge. Today, I just don’t have it in me. I want to climb with a positive attitude and a well rested body! I’m going to Wrightwood!
Recharging my batteries! Life is good!
Did I mention that I was going to Wrightwood? 😜
