TJ and Boo Boo - PCT - Aug 30, 2011 - Even Blueberries Can't Slow Her Down!
Oh it was cold this morning. Ka-Ka-Cold! Somewhere in the 40's I guess 44 degrees. Awake at 6 am, on the trail by 7:15.Then Barb discovered the berries. Blueberries and Huckleberries. She just couldn't pass them up. I kept up a consistent pace. Boo Boo would drop back, harvest berries, then race back up. She has a longer stride than I and can burst faster on the straights. This went on for a good part of the day until she started getting sick by eating too many berries.Later on, we met a newlywed couple, Brent and Julie. They were hiking and camping on their honeymoon - how cool is that! They gave us an excellent tip. (hikers, write this down) At mile 2074 is Warm Springs River. It is listed on Halfmile's maps as water and campsite. Brent and Julie said "Go on, another four tenths of a mile North to what Halfmile lists as WA2074, Small spring. Do not tell Halfmile, but there is a most wonderful campsite in here, totally obscured from the trail. Water from the spring is good too. Fire ring if you care for one and no mossies. This place could hold two or three tents.It seemed like too far for us to go today so we would shoot for our planned stop at 2072.At mile 2053 we reached Olallie Lake Resort. They have a store and are right off the PCT. But the store doesn't have much. They have no electricity there and therefore are unable to have one of those hot dog rotisseries. For some odd reason, I was hankering for a hot dog. They have refrigerators that run on propane but they have no ice cream. It is just a tiny store but the people there are very friendly. If you need some bars, candy, chips, sodas or deet stop in otherwise we recommend you move on.Oh, big day today. I almost forgot. At mile marker 2058, Barb joined the 1,000 mile club. And of course, we made a video ("She has walked 500 miles and She has walked 500 more, just to be the gal who walked 1,000 miles to fall down at your door"). Sorry, Kimo Jim is backed up and the movie will have to wait until I return. I have some good movies waiting in the wings. I'm even thinking of having a page here that just list the revisions so you interested people can find the new stuff as I add it.Barb was pretty whipped as we approached 2072. That would be it for today. We dropped down on to the side trail. Rats, there were campers there and it is a one tent site. We would have to go on.Two miles later, we reached the first 2074. It was right off the trail and provided lots of camping opportunities. We decided to take Brent and Julies advice and push on just another few tenths and see what the spring provided. There was a small sign that said "Spring". That was it. We took the trail down and it opened up to this beautiful campsite. Mark it down campersIt was fun camping there. So private, so perfect, shrouded in the forest.
