Pacific Crest Trail Map

Swimming and Fishing finally

Morning coffee on the lake shore! Non-stop laughs with Scott, he needs to do standup.
More easy hiking, lots of ridgeline, 360 vistas, and Mt Shasta getting closer and closer.
Brisk swimming and lunch at Porcupine lake under the blazing sun and bright blue sky. Much nicer than Gumboot.
And the final push of the day ends at Deadfall lake, drop dead gorgeous, great swimming, and fishing - trout for dinner! Scott is like a kid - jumping up onto logs, doing cannonballs in 3' deep water and incurring the associated injuries. He's leaving the trail with scrapes and cuts and splinters all over.
Half dozen thru-hikers showed up - Apache, Whatever, Songbird, and Legs (amazing they were), and a few others we didnt speak with. All young, dirty and thoroughly enjoying the hiker trash lifestyle, and pushing 25+ mi/days.
