Space Age - PCT - May 10, 2014 - Mile 200
Coming down the seemingly endless switchbacks that descend from Mt San Jacinto and Fuller Ridge, we pass the 200 mile marker. The path wanders leisurely, at times exposing us to the full force of the wind funneled between mountain ranges but sometimes offering intervals of shelter, as well. At the foot of the mountain is a welcome sight: a drinking fountain promises to quench our thirst! Still the wind teases us, blowing the stream of water everywhere but between our parched lips!
Making our way across the sun-baked mud flats toward the I-10 bridge, the high-tension power lines serenade us, crackling with electricity and singing in the wind like some alien chorus. There is no shelter from the dust devils that play with my hat. I stretch out my arms ready to take flight. Again mind and body are perfectly in tune.
At Ziggy & the Bear, we are processed efficiently. They have already hosted over 800 hikers this year. Sheltered from the sun and wind, we attend to our feet. For dinner, we are served salad, pizza and ice cream.
Dark clouds roll in as night falls and our hosts warn that tonight will be very windy. A generous quantity of sand blows into my sleeping bag as I struggle to zip it closed. Cocooned inside, I can hear the sand pelting the exterior. Occasionally, a strong gust lifts the edges of my sleeping pad. I imagine that I am sleeping on a magic flying carpet.
