Pacific Crest Trail Map

Cross Hauser Creek

Mile 16
Cross Hauser Creek

Well, we didnt make the 20 miles to Lake Morena today. I would have been surprised if we had. I just have not gotten out enough.

I started today with two A16 customers, Dan and Lon. Dan was planning a south bound hike this year but work conflicts postponed it for another year or so. Dan will be hiking through Sunday. Dans wife, Esther, drove us to the trail head. I had joined Dan and Esther in a section hike about a year ago. Lon has been giving me GPS lessons. Lon was planning to hike Section A & some of B again and offered to let me join him and continue the lessons. He goes by the trail name Halfmile. He has plotted every half mile of the trail for 1800 miles using his GPS. Lon also has a web site set up with the permission of National Geographic showing his half mile plots on their maps. Dan and Lon have exchanged emails via the PCTL but just met in person yesterday.

Dan and Lon have a similar pace, faster than me. The guys were good about me needing to stop short of the goal. The hike down the canyon was rough, my legs felt like rubber. I feel better after a hot meal but it is getting cold and I am happy to be in my bag.

In the canyon with us is another couple, Christie and John. They are hiking a section and plan to do about 10 miles a day.

Oh, yeah, I forgot to say that we had a send off from Border Patrol Agent Philip who was kind enough to let us take a picture with him. I forgot to ask if I could post the picture so I won't.
