March 31 – Trek from the Terminus

“I don’t want to get to the end of my life and find that I have lived just the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well.”-Diane Ackerman.

PCT – Southern terminus at the Mexican border to Lake Moreno Campground
20 miles

Oh my gosh this day was incredible, diverse, and fun! It started off with a generous ride to the border from Sprinkles. The weather was cool and WINDLESS. Super rare. Today we experienced: snakes, poison oak, expansive views, elevation gain, border patrol, various discarded clothing left behind by undocumented immigrants, more wildflowers than I could count, cloud cover during part of the day, delicious homemade dehydrated spaghetti, a hot shower and warm shower. Oh and we also had fun hiding Easter eggs.

  2. I swear, the first day is one of the best on the whole trail! A translation of the last part of the sign is, “It’s not worth it!” Hilarious!

    • It’s not worth it! Well, I think it depends on who you are talking to. Really???? It IS very funny. BTW: the first day had the biggest variety of wildflowers of all the days and I was the sweatiest I have ever been in my life. It was very humid. Nice.

  3. Ok! That is the most funny sign!! Thanks for the egg hunt today! Hope we get more tomorrow too! Have fun! It looks beautiful!
