Pacific Crest Trail Map

Afternoon Creek

Got late start from long day yesterday. Tired. Very hot at 7:30 in the morning. Continued hike up Mission Creek and the temps were so hot. Passed by a CalFire trail crew and the chief said it was going to be 103 degrees.

Mission Creek goes underground due to porous sediments but can be found up the trail. We spent the afternoon napping next to the creek in the shade. Also fixed dinner where we had water.

Left our relaxation spot around 4:30 and started our ascent. Due to our napping we planned on some night hiking. We hiked until 11pm and then threw out our bed where the trail turned into a road. We hiked with head lamps but the moon was quite bright. We could see the snow all lit up on San Gorgonio Mtn.

***The air was filled with ladybugs again. As we laid next to the creek you could look up and see tons of them flying by. So, I was wondering.....what is the life cycle of a ladybug? Please let us know in the guestbook!
