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.
