Five weeks of walking and over 650 miles in, we now have our walking legs on covering about 20 miles a day, with the longest day being 27 miles. Weather in general has been hot, hot, hot. Apart from the storm that we had near Big Bear Lake.
Scenery has been wonderful. Desert, forest, mountain and much more altitude gain and loss than I was expecting. We seem to have crossed every mountain range in Southern California!
We have managed to stay away from the herd fairly well. Must be getting old!
Section 2 of the hike is looming – the High Sierras! There is still loads of snow in the High Sierras so we have decided to break from the trail for a couple of weeks to let more snow melt before continuing on.
