Pacific Crest Trail Map

1,000 miles!

Let's see what I can do in 8 minutes at the Shasta internet cafe. Greetings from mile 1010.3 of Marmot and Roo's PCT adventure. We are in the wonderful town of Mount Shasta this morning where there are lovely natural food stores, great beers, super nice people at all the gear shops and amazing views of a 14,100+ foot volcano. Like many Cascades volcanoes, Mt. Shasta can hide in the clouds or be out in full snowy glacier glad glory. The last few days its been mostly hiding in the clouds as we've wandered around the Klamath mountains' Trinity Range. We left Etna on Monday morning and were anticipating lots of snow for the next 99.8 miles. We were pleasantly surprised to have a beautiful mostly snow-free section of trail, with only a few wind loaded slopes.

Soon we'll be picked up by friends Justin and Li An to head to Dunsmuir for a late breakfast and then we'll hit the trail to head south to Burney.

The minutes are almost up, so hopefully we'll find another place to upload photos from the last few beautiful 220 miles and the delicious and AWESOME pancake challenge at the Seiad Valley Cafe. All I can say is: GO there! And thank you Liz and friends at CLC for the oh so fun treat.

Happy trails.
