Wind Farm and Clouds

Surreal Last Stretch to Hwy 58

I packed up early and hiked out to Hwy 58 accompanied by one of the other hikers. The other two soon followed. We made it to Cameron Road near Hwy 58 in about 2 hrs 45 minutes. Extreme winds blowed us sideways the whole way. I wondered what the wind chill was. Like another planet--hiking in the high winds over mist covered undulating hills, with blowing light rain accompanied by the whirring presence of the giant wind turbines. A unique experience, not exactly wilderness but all PCT. We dropped our packs at the car and slacked over to Hwy 58 to officially finish the section. Catalina Chuck and the others turned into trail angels and dropped me off at a motel in Tehachapi after we had a great breakfast at the Apple Shed restaurant (eggs benedict on corned beef hash for me). Another section completed!!!!
