2018 PCT Section Hike - Day 2
3k Climb today; Started at 3k and Finished at 6k.
Light morning rain; Cool Temps.
Only carried 2 liters of H2O today.
Bob got me a room at Mt Laguna & bought dinner at the Mt Laguna Cafe.
Need to resupply tomorrow but the store doesnt open til 9.
Sore again; Electrolytes out of whack.
Eric sprained his ankle & Bob is sick.
We started out about 7:15a from Lake Morena in a light rain. By mid-morning it cleared up and we made pretty good time. The weather was mild again and the distance between water sources made it possible to only carry 2 liters. Unfortunately, in the early afternoon, Eric sprained his ankle. It swelled up pretty quickly. He was able to put weight on it and walk, but I could tell it was a huge concern to him. We made it to Mt. Laguna a little after 5pm. Bob started feeling under the weather and so the group made the decision to get rooms at the motel in Mt. Laguna. Once I got my salt level properly adjusted I felt much better. I was a little less sore than Day 1, and felt good. I was able to take a shower and get my clothes clean, which was a nice unexpected luxury on Day 2.
