Girder Creek to Seiad Valley
I got an early start to resupply today. The trail continued to be dense and lush. I am constantly looking for that poison oak I know is there with no luck. There is a 7 mile road walk that parallels the Klamath River. I enjoyed listening to a backpacking play list Silly Chili had put together for me. It was very motivating. Along the way there was huge construction on part of the road that had washed away. That made for some craziness in the day!
I am staying at the RV park where they have a whole area set up just for PCT hikers and all their needs. When I came in I was so glad to see Serenity and Twice a Lady here. Serenity stayed with us when she was coming through Tehachapi and had skipped up to avoid snow and stream crossings. It was so good to see and visit with them. I love this trail!
It is warm here so I have been doing chores, soaking in the creek, and breathing. This is a very unique community. People are friendly and seem relaxed and happy, but definitely not rich. Life is so good.
Tomorrow morning I am heading out early for the long uphill to beat the heat on to Ashland, Oregon. I am hoping to make it in 3 1/2 days. No cell service I am told between here and Ashland. 🙁
