Northern California
Starting: Section N13 - Subway Cave
Ending:  Section N18 - Cassel Campground

What a great section! The notoriously hot & dry Hat Creek Rim section was a very pleasant 30-mile hike. Blessed with partly cloudy skies, a strong breeze & the best water cache to date, it was one of my favorite sections of the trail so far. Our first views of not-so-distant snow capped Mt. Shasta didn't hurt either.

Amigo's Cache 22 was a delicious afternoon surprise. While I knew there was a water cache, I didn't realize it was a CACHE. Half lean-to, half tree it provided ample shade. A beer cooler (empty) & 7+ gallons of spring water provided liquid refreshment. Throw in a register to sign AND a bench to sit on & you have yourself a party. THANK YOU AMIGO!

Currently camped at the PG&E Cassel Campground. This makes 2 nights in a row with picnic tables & water faucets. What are the chances of 3 in a row...
