Pacific Crest Trail Map

Day 34

A great nights sleep led to another early morning of hiking to outrun the desert heat. The day started with a climb which lasted about 7 miles. It seemed as though the climb went on forever as the sun rose over the desert mountains. We finally reached the top and took a rest before the long descent. The wind was intense as we descended upon the largest wind farm in the world. There are literally thousands of turbines. Quite impressive. We continued to descend through burned forest and hit the road at 12 Noon. After about a half hour of hitching we were picked up by a local woman who delivered us into Mojave, blazing hot desolate Mojave. We'll enjoy a zero tomorrow before we head back to the hot desert towards Kennedy Meadows.
