Desert View Trailhead to PCT mile 34.0
(17 miles, +4,600/-4,600 feet).
It’s been quite a while since I did a serious hiking day. My tendonitis is finally healed, though, so time to get back on the horse.
Er, that is, if by horse, I mean the PCT. (I do!)
So today I joined BarnFinder and HeartRate on one of their there-and-back PCT section hikes.
And I was in luck: they chose one of the prettiest stretches in SoCal. I missed some of it on my thru-hike attempt earlier this year because I took an alternate path to the store in Mount Laguna, so I was especially eager for this section.
We got to the trailhead a little before sunrise and had absolutely perfect weather the whole day. And by the end of the hike I still felt healthy! I’m hoping this bodes well for some long hikes I’d like to do next year…
