Southern California
Starting: Section E3 - The Saufley's
Ending:  Section E3 - San Francisquito Canyon Road

Left the Saufley's this morning with a new perspective on thru-hikers. There are 2 basic types of thru-hikers: those that view the PCT as a trail separated by towns, & those that view the PCT as towns separated by trail. Not sure which camp I am in.

It is ironic that this hike, this solo hike, is turning out to be such a social experience (& that I am enjoying it so much!), when one of my main reasons for going was to temporarily distance myself from society & to simply "live deliberately" in the same tradition as Thoreau.

The afternoon stop at the Anderson "Oasis" cache & the cold root beer enjoyed there was a great break during the hard 24 mile day…
