500 miles cone style

500 Miles!

Got an early start today but made slow progress this morning. Still having a lot of shoulder pain. Had a 10 mile waterless stretch until we got to a water tank. Just a few miles before we officially passed trail mile 500! Got to the water tank after noon.

Still fighting off the flies today. Decided the next good water was 18 miles so we got moving. We were blessed with shady skies and a few thundershower sprinkles as we hiked through a beautiful black oak forest.

Heard some motor bikes in the distance and suddenly they were coming at us on the trail. There are no wheels allowed on the PCT. I stayed on the trail as long as I dared but finally stepped off because I thought they were going to run us over. There were 3 bikers in total. I kinda gestured like what are you doing here and one guy shouted out this trail allows motorized vehicles (which is not true).

Crossed through the San Andreas Rift Zone. Guide book said the fault went right through a sag pond we hiked by. Pushed on and the last 7 miles seemed very long.

Arrived at Hikertown in the dark and quickly removed our shoes.
