After 3.5 weeks off trail I’m “BACK IN THE SADDLE AGAIN”…not only is it a great Aerosmith song it’s also appropriate given that the Tour de France is in full swing.
I flew into Medford, OR last night then caught a 6am bus. I then hitched a ride to the trailhead I departed from on June 16th…thanks Rocky! Rocky is section hiking the whole PCT over 4 years and she’ll be over 80% done this year!
Hitting the trail after 3.5 weeks of R&R.
I think I accidentally walked through a wormhole and wound up in Canada…not sure why the distances on this sign are in kilometers ?

Cooling my feet off in a refreshing creek.
The impressive Mt Shasta.
Cowboy camping under Mt Shasta.
There was a lot of climbing today (6000’+). Unfortunately, the steep section was also out of the tall pines and very hot with no shade.
