Beep Beep

March 1st and 2nd were tough!  Southern terminus to Lake Morena, it rained, all day, both days!  It was like hiking through wet cement and cold.  I enjoyed the hike in spite of the challenges and the weather.  I saw yellow, pink and blue flowers and i think it was the blue ones that were emitting a beautiful sweet scent!  On a possitive note, there was no lack of water them 2 days, lol.  March 2nd after arrival at lake morena it hailed 3 different times lol, crazy.  Took a zero day at lake Morena,  Tuesday March 3rd to clean up gear and dry out.  Was a beautiful mostly sunny day until about 1:30 p.m when the clouds rolled in and I’ll be damned if it didn’t start raining and hailing again! Ugh lol I’m starting to feel like a drowned rat and can hardly wait to get to Mt. Laguna and get a hotel room to wash myself and my clothes 🙂   I’m thinking I will take 3 days to get to Mt. Laguna.  6 miles, 7 miles and then 9 miles. I’m having some shin splint issues and don’t wanna make it worse, that and my muscles are kinda rebelling, lol.  I’m starting to think the PCT likes giving me a smack down when I first start out hehehe but beep beep I’m coming thru!!! Ps…no pics yet due to rain ..Sighs. maybe next posting I hope.

  3. Tess, you are the first blogger! The first one to report a PCT start on “The Journalist”! I love these reports, I read them through the season last year. I live in San Diego, I can say the weather is probably not done with you yet, remain inspired, be strong, keep going!
