Wildflowers at the Hunt Club

Circle - PCT - May 30, 2008 - Friday, Descent To LA Aqueduct
This is the day I descend to the 17.7 mi. stretch walking along the LA Aqueduct. I will be totally exposed to sun and wind, some sage and stands of joshua trees. The last refuge from the sun and a sure water source is Hikertown just across hiway 138 and 10 miles into my day. As I descend Park Bench, a 30 year old from Southeastern Ohio, passes me.
I had my breakfast overlooking the Hunt Club property which I will be in for 7 miles. They have given the PCT easement across this stretch. I entered when I crossed Pine Canyon.
Large signs indicated stay on trail, area under surveillance, shooting from October 1 to April 30.
At 12 :15 I arrived at Hikertown. This is a bit of an odd place. There are a series of old west store fronts along the eastern perimeter, a yellow manufactured home, several large motor homes and a lovely lawn out front with a large shade tree and a lot of lawn furniture. Park Bench is relaxing in a swinging bench when I arrive. It is a great lunch stop. I pulled up a chair under the tree, took my shoes off and put my feet up just marveling at the shade and the grass. I ate lunch, washed my socks and undies, hooked up the hose to the outdoor shower, took a shower and relaxed until 3:00, avoiding the peak sun.
I ventured on hiking until 6:30 or 7:00. Tonight I found a sheltered spot in a shallow ravine on the southeast side of Aqueduct Road sheltered by some lovely Joshua Trees. Great sunset and the third night under wonderful trees of a quite different nature.

Trekking on,
