clouded sunrise

Dirty Dancing Dunsmuir

Mumford and Sons sounds
Shower and room a nice treat
Pizza and beer yum


Heard my rustling neighbor and jumped into action at 545 am. Was on trail by 615 am but took some time not long after to view the clouded sunrise. About an hour later a short cut presented itself. The old pct.

I stood in indecision. Finally, a sense of adventure won out and I was headed down an unknown path. A little bush whack, a clear cut and then a road led directly to the pct. 5 miles saving. Passed the 1500 mark. A splurge, I bumped the tunes for a few songs. Mumford was in order.

As luck would have it, I caught a hitch within 5 minutes. Got the tour of the town and was dropped at the grocery store which luckily was only a couple blocks from the Dunsmuir Inn. $ 100 later I had a room.

Shower. Beer. Laundry. TV. Library computer to update WordPress blog. Pizza. Chance meeting with Kpax. More beer. Dirty dancing movie. Past hiker midnight.......growing tired.
