Mile 0 – 20
The trail magic began before we even arrived to the trail. Our wonderful trail angel, Bob Reiss, picked us up. We were then taken to a delicious burrito dinner at Scout and Frodo’s house. After a solid 2 hours of sleep, Bob gently woke us up at 4:30 am. 5 of us piled in to his van and headed to the southern terminus.
We were on the trail at 6:30 am and somehow had 10 miles in by 11am. At mile 15 we decided we felt good enough to make the last 5 miles to Lake Morena.
While in line waiting to pay for our campsite, we had some more unexpected trail magic! An awesome family of 5 invited us to share their site. Thank you much Cameron, Rabeka, Alexander, Sebastian, and Gwendolyn!!! You guys made us feel like part of your family! To top off that magic, another trail angel named Sherpa, was serving spaghetti dinners. Thanks Sherpa!
Bedtime was at 10. We stayed up so late because Rabeckah and Cameron made a great fire and it was great company!!
