More Castle Crags

Crossing Interstate 5

I tossed and turned all night from the warmer temperatures (we were at a much lower elevation), we packed up and headed for the next water supply. We stopped in one mile and filtered water for breakfast but we waited until another three miles to fully fill up. We kept waiting for the downhill to Interstate 5 but we kept dropping down into a ravine where there was either a little stream or a dry creek bed, and then hiked back up. So it was an up and down kind of morning. We arrived at the boundary of the Castle Crags State Park and it was lovely strolling all the way to the freeway. We went through an underpass and had to road walk to the continuation of the PCT but was stopped by lovely Soda Creek. We nipped down the short trail to the water, shed the backpacks and shoes, and walked in with handkerchief in hand and started a rubbing washdown. Two people from a side road saw us and called down asking how the water was. Great, we said. Oops, here they came, and us in our skivvies. They weren't hikers but they did't seem to mind, so we kept washing the dirt off. I had sent a quick text to hubby Dave saying that we had crossed Interstate 5 and he responded, "What can I do for you?" Well, that opened a discussion that quickly resolved in, "come get us, we want a shower!" Are we spoiled or what? We will start at the same place early tomorrow morning and march southward to Ash Camp. Oh, and as of today we have hiked 211.8 miles!!
