PCT Day 5 – Zero at Mt Laguna
Well, I wasn’t expecting our near zero yesterday to turn into a zero today too, but Carie felt her blisters needed more time to heal before we got going again. Two of our friends were also nursing injuries, so we decided to post up at the campground.
It’s funny how fast you can make friends and feel close, and then something unexpected sets you back a day, and now we’ll probably be hiking perpetually a day behind our friends who pushed on. Maybe we’ll see them again, and maybe we’ll be even closer to the new people we just met, because there’s always a group of hikers just ahead or behind on this trail.
