One touch of nature makes the whole world kin.
Callahans Lodge to Highway 66 (Soda Springs Wilderness)
It was very difficult leaving the lap of luxury this morning. Consequently, I did not hit the trail until 12:00 noon. I was lucky that the day was cool with a light breeze and not much elevation gain. This area north of Ashland in the Soda Springs Wilderness is very arid with few water sources. It was also a VERY social day as there were quite of few day hikers and PCT thru-hikers I stopped and visited with. Some are just starting the trail and others are doing a small section, but all share the love of being on the trail. You can feel it and see it in their faces. I love it.
No cow or bear scat to be seen today, but I am now listening to a pack of coyotes. Come on!!!! now I think I deserve a break from visiting nightly wildlife don’t ya all think so?
