Southern Terminus

Campo - PCT Southern Terminus

Well then.

After 24 hours on the bus I arrived at the El Cajon transit center. Faced with 7 hour wait for the rural bus to Campo, a taxi ride was in order. 65 bucks and 45 minutes later I was at the trail head. This meant a start time of 9:30am instead of 5pm.

It's so good to be on the trail! 40 hours without significant sleep and 20 miles later I've arrived at Lake Morena, complete with hot showers! Mark, the philosopher from Minnesota is the only other hiker at the hiker campsite. Tomorrow I'm off to Mt. Laguna.
