Pacific Crest Trail Map

Back on trail

We left Shrek's swamp Sunday night and retraced the trail where we had left
off last year, crossing the Bridge of the Gods into WA. After a short
stretch we reached Gillette lake where had planned to camp we found two
hikers, Clutch & Wontonio, with a campfire who invited us to join them. It
was a nice little camp and a fire on trail is always a treat!

I was giddy to be back on trail again, but I'm not sure it has really sunk
in yet that I am here doing this. The decision to hike and the life changes
that transpired in order to do so (quitting job, renting out house, moving
everything into storage) all came about only a couple of weeks ago and it
has been a complete whirlwind. Basic elements of the trail such as setting
up camp, cooking dinner, packing the pack, walking, came as second nature
but I think it will take a bit of time for my mind to quiet and allow me to
slip back into the mental peace that the trail provides.
