Disappearing Crk

Down the hill to Castella

Without water at Disappearing Creek, we didn't fix breakfast before leaving camp this morning. So we got out a bit earlier than usual. Of course, a mile down the trail we reached some water, so we had to stop to fix and eat breakfast. That put us right back on our regular schedule.

It's incredible how much time we spent walking uphill when we were walking down the hillside to Castella. Oh well, we go wherever the trail takes us. It was a somewhat calming hike, as we walked a shaded trail. It almost looked like something out of Hansel & Gretel. A little on the spooky side. Then we'd come to a stream crossing that looked more like something out of Jurrasic Park.

After 10 miles, we finally reached the bottom of the hill and crossed under I-5. We walked a road for a short distance and located where the trail resumed. It was quite hot, so we decided to rinse in the nearby stream, eat our dinner, and wait for things to cool a bit before we resumed our hike up the next hill.

Then Gadget Girl got a call from Resupply Guy, who offered to come get us. Hmmm. We let him. He took to the motorhome for a shower. He'll return us to the trail early tomorrow morning when we can walk up the hill in the cool of the day. We're so spoiled!!!
