Monday, July 6, 2015. PCT day 78 miles 1189.2-1198 Today is a nero day. I slept in until 06:30 and left camp by 0730. The trail was all downhill, 8.5 miles into Sierra City, which is at 4200 feet elevation. It definitely felt warmer/hotter down here. I arrived here by 11:30ish. The small town is only about a mile from the trail. I set up camp by the local church. I had my cold shower ...
... with him. I've been bumping into him often on the trail. Last time I saw Dingo and Cosmic Bubbles was in VVR. For the most part, the terrain today was not very spectacular. It is still mostly volcanic and forestry. The hiking was mellow with easy climbs. It was in the 40s this morning. It felt like it got up to the low 80s by mid afternoon. It felt muggy. No rain, tho. I so appreciate the tree canopy shade, making the heat more bearable. Another thing I ...
Saturday, July 4, 2015. PCT day 76. Miles 1140-1163. Today was an amazing day. I kinda slept in. Didn't wake up until 5:45. My morning was slow. I didn't leave camp until around 0730.

But then ...
... lightning. On another note, I can see now where this thru-hike is beginning to be a mental challenge. I am definitely starting to feel the mental taxation. And I am not even half way done. I am not the only one feeling this. I've been talking to other hikers, and they are feeling it too. They say it's the Northern CA blues. We still have about 600 miles left before we are done with CA. Oh boy!! God give me the mental fortitude. Tomorrow I will do another 25 mile ...
... full of food. I swear I have lots of food. Gonna pig out this stretch. Thanks Jonathan. Leaving Echo Lake, the trail eventually takes you to Aloha Lake. This Lake was so beautiful. It looked like Thousand Island Lake in the High Sierra. It was surrounded by granite peaks and the lake had many small islands in it. The Lake was only at around 8500 feet, yet it looked and felt like it should be at 10,000 feet plus. Leaving Aloha Lake, the trail takes you ...
