Today has been a lax day. We have about 14 miles to hike and another 12 mile hitch into town which I've heard is easy. I think my plan is to restock and stay in town for the night then find a ride back to the kick off in Lake Morena. That will give me a chance to rest me feet and get some real food in. I've been passing a lot of people hiking southbound to get to the kick off. Most of them have do the PCT a few times or did it last year (they come back to celebrate). I'm excited to meet more of them and hear their stories.
I've been seeing these cactus plants along the trail. The flowers on them are bright pink. It's nice.
