Wow. 100 days on the trail. That seems like a long time. Maybe it is. After yesterday’s big day, I slept in until 7am. It was a pretty easy walk down to Burney Falls State Park where I had my next resupply. On the way down, though, I came across one of the most amazing caches so far on the trail. There were chairs, a picnic table, tons of cold drinks, a cupboard full of food, a stove and pots, and even an outdoor shower. I hadn’t had a shower since Chester, so I decided to use this one. It was fantastic. As the day went on, I started to run into a lot of hikers. I had been in between groups lately and it was nice to have some people around again. I ran into Tank, Dogger, Blue, Giant, Phil and Julia, and another couple. It was hot when I finally got to the park, but I ran down to the bottom of the falls. They were amazing. After that, I got my packages at the store and sat in the shade until the sun got a little less intense. Thank you Aunt Linda for the bars and gift card. Thanks mom for the care package too. I don’t know where you found the Country Time lemonade packets, but they are awesome. I ended up hiking about five more miles once the heat died down some and set up camp with Blue.
