Making it happen

Yesterday the plan was to wake Sunday morning with only 10 miles to I-5. We needed 34 miles to make that happen.

So at 5:45am we set off. The trail showed obvious signs of recent trail work and we ran into their camp first thing. They offered us some breakfast but we declined as we were on a mission. Thanks trail crews!

By noon we had some serious miles in. By late afternoon we were at the bottom of a giant hole called Squaw Valley Creek. Our goal was clearly not going to happen.

With Collin in the lead at an insane pace and me trying to keep up we started up this awful climb. By almost dark we made the top of them climb a mile short of our goal.

11 miles to go to Dunsmuir.

Time To Reset

The past is for reminiscing, the present for living and the future for anticipating. Don't lament any of it.
