We had a 2000 foot climb up Mount Laguna today, so we got up pretty early at 5:30 AM. Once we got up Mount Laguna the whole ecosystem had changed. There were Oak trees, pine trees, lots of spotted shady areas and different meadow areas. It no longer felt desert like. We got into Mount Laguna at noon and picked up our resupply boxes at the general store. Our cell phones are finally working so we took that chance to give our parents a call to let them know how we were doing. From there, we took a very very long lunch at Pinehouse Café. We ate with some of our new friends that we have made while hiking. We lucked out and were able to get a place at Mount Laguna Lodge. After long showers, doing our laundry, and organizing our food resupply we are about ready to go to sleep. In a bed!!!
