Meeting Jane and Ken
A top-notch day. We slept until about 9:30am, then got up and found water in Little Bear Creek. Had breakfast with Oblivious and Troll (who had already hiked 6 miles) then hit the trail around 10:30am. Hiked steadily 'til we reached a nice creek crossing near Crab Flats Road. We had our lunch at the creek (Holcomb Creek) and spent an hour or so relaxing. Packed up around 3:15pm and cruised the remaining 6.5 miles to the bridge over Deep Creek, where we met Jane and Ken, relatives of George, and their super friendly dog, Patches. They were pretty much the nicest people ever - very generous, very friendly and animated, easy to talk to. They gave us an interesting history of the area as we drove to their house. Their house was almost as awesome as they were - a little one bedroom cottage in a phenomenal garden tucked away down a tree-lined little road. They also have a 1920 log cabin next to their house that they are remodeling. We got to go inside and check it out - SO fantastic! Once it's done, they'll move there and turn their house into a guest cottage. Anyways, we started a load of laundry and went to a local restaurant on Lake Arrowhead for dinner. The food was excellent and there was a great view of the lake. After dinner, they took us to our lodgings for the night - a really nice local inn! They didn't have a spare room at their house, so they are putting us up in this awesome room with a four poster canopy bed! After a shower, I'm off to reading and sleep.
P.S. THANKS to Sylvi, Stephen, and Kels for the letters!!
