As you know by now, Janel is taking a break from the trail for awhile. I will be hiking on, but will be anxiously waiting until the next time we hike together. I do miss her already. This morning we finished off our day of luxury with room service for breakfast. After that, I got a ride back to the trail with Rock Ocean, who is a one man shuttle service for us PCT hikers this year. I passed by Echo Lake Chalet en route to the 1100 mile marker (although there was no marker). At this point I was in Desolation Wilderness and passed by the beautiful Aloha Lake. I had been watching storm clouds form all day and after climbing over Dick’s pass, the rain finally got me. It rained all night.
