One mile north of Hancock Lake to Cottonwood Pass Road
Goal today: Hike 27 miles to trail magic by Michael and Sydney, father and son that are on a cross-country vacation. They contacted Wired through her blog and wanted to do trail magic. They brought Pringles, Oreos, grapes, bananas, and chocolate milk. I even made a great trade, a Subway sandwich for my dehydrated Chili and Fritos dinner. Thank you Michael and Sydney and also to Wired for making all the arrangements!
Just a few minutes after starting the day an ice chest full sodas was left on the side of the trail by Liv from Salida. Thank you Liv!
I hiked with Sycamore for the morning up an historic train route. The rest of the day was challenging (up 2 passes), amazingly beautiful, and on a very busy ATV road.
The afternoons continue to serve up thunderstorms, rain, hail, and snow. Makes for very dramatic photos. Silly Chili is one day behind us. Hoping he is safe and enjoying this beautiful country.
