My journals keep getting erased

Alright, so for the third time, my journal that I had originally written here has been erased. I apoligise for having such short journal entries lately, but its getting to be a pain to rewrite entries.

So... from Wrightwood be walked up Mt Baden Powell. It was my most favorite part of the trail so far. The hike was very steep, tons of snow, and we had beautiful views of the desert and mountians below. It took us four hours to hike four miles, it was that steep. At the summit of the mountain, we came across a tree that was estimated to be around 1500 years old!

After summiting the mountain, we walked down to Little Jimmy campground and the next morning we headed down the mountain. Bandit, Mr F*n Gentlespirit, and I walk on hwy 2 all day since the trail had many detours and closures due to the station fire years ago and the endangered yellow legged frog. It was an easy +20 mile day walking down the highway.

The next day Bandit's girlfriend Amy picked the three of us up and we spent some time at a campground with Bandit's family. They were awesome, and fed us very well. I felt like I was being spolied like a child. Tri-tip, BBQ chicken, and milk!!!

THANK YOU to Bandit's family for all your hospitality!! It was awesome to meet you, and I look forward to hanging out again in the future.
