June 8 – Easy Street

Messenger Flat Campground to Hiker Heaven in Agua Dulce
24 miles

It was a day filled with laughter, smiles, heat, silence, fast hiking, and generosity. Tonight my clothes and I are clean thanks to the Saufleys at Hiker Heaven in Aqua Dulce. Donna Saufley has a full on operation that services hikers as they pass through, complete with laundry, postal service, beds, showers, and a plethora of hiker boxes filled with most everything a hiker would need.

Silly spent most of the day literally hanging out and hiking hard. He drank Starbucks and ate ice cream while lounging in the cool grass at the KOA in Acton, had his laundry done, dinner cooked, and relaxed in the Adirondack chairs contemplating whether to have the local massage therapist come by. Instead he just did Yoga. I spent my day running after him.

Tomorrow we will be visiting the Anderson’s Casa de Luna for a brief time. They are also famous trail angels that love to live life to the fullest. Life is so great. Enjoying this cake walk.
