Abandoned lookout tower on the rim

All Day Long - PCT - May 29, 2015 - Walking The Hat Creek Rim
This entry covers Friday, 5-29. Old Station 1370.9 to CS @ HM 1391.3: 20.4 miles.

Packed up and hiked the 2 miles to JJ's Cafe for breakfast before heading out to Hat Creek rim. The trail grade was friendly as we gained the 600' of elevation to the rim. Then it wound around the rim edge as we headed north. Temps were about 80f with a slight breeze and high cirrus clouds. That was a break since this area is known for being much hotter especially in the main summer months. I packed 4 liters for the day. Looking down from the rim, I could see several small ponds. And near today's midpoint was a .3 mile side trail down to a spring which I did not visit. Saw two 3' rattlers & 1 garter snake enroute. Just before the CS, the Cache22 water cache appeared and was stocked with about 22 gallons of water. Someone's small cattle herd was grazing nearby inside a fenced area. Walking about .25 miles from the cache, we found a nice CS on a small knoll with a 360 degree view. I set my tent up with all 4 flaps pulled back for night sky viewing. After a dinner of potatoes/olive oil and hot chocolate, it was time to rest. Overall an easy day of hiking. Tomorrow we'll close in on Burney Falls State Park and possibly make it there.

All Day Long
