I'm back in the town of Idyllwild, the place where this long journey began five months ago, preparing to leave tomorrow for the last 175 miles south to Campo. I'm slightly perplexed about how excited I feel to be heading back into the mountains and begin hiking once again. Wasn't five months enough already? Three days in San Diego was enough to realize that I'm not all that excited to return back to the civilized life. Unfortunately, every time has its season, and this adventure will be coming to a close real soon. Until then, happy trails!
