PCT: Big Bear Break

Took the day off yesterday after completing the first 266 miles of the trail. 10% complete! I’ve had a great time hanging out with fellow hikers here in Big Bear and have been eating tons of good food. This morning I’m still nursing some shin splints in my right leg, but generally my body is holding up very well and I feel good. I’m looking forward to getting back on trail this afternoon. My next town for food resupply will be late next week in Wrightwood at about mile 360.

The past week or two has brought some dramatic shifts in weather, both cold and wet in Idyllwild and the San Juacinto mountains and then 110+ degree temperatures last weekend as I crossed I-10 and started in the San Bernardino mountains. I was able to beat a little of the heat in Palm Springs for a night when my friend, Alisa, drove out to pick me up from Los Angeles.
