Day 35

{dailyDistance=
If yesterday was about water today was about wind energy as we spent most of today's 25 miles walking thru 5000 wind turbines, rather strange indeed. Day started with a climb up to 6200 FT where there was trail magic, water, chairs and shade,but the rest of the day was contouring or down to Hwy 58 where trail angel Jetta Blue picked Bisquik and I up and brought us to the Motel 6 in Mojave.Thanks so much Jetta Blue for making one more run after the very long day you have had. Very comfortable here with everything a hiker needs within 3 min walk. Will zero here tomorrow and do laundry and eating!!
A word about my modified trail name, after I meet Baggins, a young Kiwi, in Acton he began referring to me as Papa Kiwi to other hikers I found out when met him again today. Decided I would take the Papa title as a mark of respect !!!
Today's walk was thru yet another burn area, it's staggering how much of southern California has burned in the last decade or so. A section of today's walk would have been lovely oak and pine forest, similar to a couple of days ago, before the fire but is now a completely shadeless stretch of trail.
Alls well on the PCT
Papa Kiwi.
