Follow your heart, but take your brain with you.
This weekend I will be hiking a 45 mile section of the PCT from Interstate 10 near Cabazon in Southern California to Onyx Summit just south of Big Bear Lake. It is literally all uphill, starting at 1000 feet and ending at 8750 winding up into the San Bernardino Mountain Range. The weather forecast is hot with the predicted highs in the 90’s. Pretty funny because just last weekend a very strong storm system came through this area dumping snow and rain. Hikers were even advised for a few days to find shelter and stay put. What a contrast!!
I have to admit it kind of feels like I am in grade school coloring in a connect the dots worksheet when completing these Southern California PCT trail miles. I am encouraged and committed. One step at a time.
