Memories from July 20
Since the plan is to ge to Castellated by Friday at 5pm, today needs to be about 35 miles. That starts with something about 10 miles of uphill into the Castle Crags Wilderness, though it’s well graded. The views were fantastic breaking a recent slump in the visual excitement of the trail.
Ridge walks are a real highlight because you can look out over both sides.
The trial was very windy. Since Shasta is far away it’s easily obscured by closer peaks. This lead to the feeling of hide-and-seek. It’s kind of strange to have a giant mountain appear out of no where as though saying, “I found you”.
When hikers do donuts. Actually, I have no clue what causes this.
Just another pretty picture. What a day.
