More miles, more desert! There were a few hot days, but nothing that a nice long break in the middle of the day couldn’t take care of.
Yesterday we passed Silverwood Lake with lovely picnic facilities. Today right before Cajon Pass, there was a neat little canyon to walk through, a nice change from the scrubby hills.
Passed the 300 mile mark and almost half way through the desert section! Next up: more mountains, including Baden Powell.
Leaving Bear Big, there were some views of the lake below:
Looking ahead to the San Gabriel Mountains, where I will be in the next week:
Pretty little canyon right before I-15 and Cajon Pass:
Yes, the Golden Arches, less than a half mile away. Not food I’d typically eat, but on a thru-hike . . . well . . .
