Pacific Crest Trail, Week 3, Big Bear City to Cajon Pass, 5.30.17

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 back to Silverwood Lake in the early morning, taking advantage of the cooler temperatures for hiking:

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 . . .

    A thru hiker knows no culinary shame. Need I remind you of the cruller french toast at Lou’s in Hanover? Of which you ate all? And didn’t have to try hard?

    That I’m jealous is my point here… 😉

    • MMmmmm. Cruller french toast. Thanks, that’s all I can think of now and I’m in the California desert! LOL.

  2. Summerset,

    You are off to a great start on your thru hike. i have enjoyed the updates. Hopefully you are settled into a trail mindset. McDonald’s might be thru hiker food but ring dings rule in winter!

    John

    • Thanks, John! Thru-hiker ways die hard, so I’m back at it. LOL. Ring-dings! That brings back some memories. LOL.
