Since I do not have the pictures from Crater Lake to Washington yet from my brother, I decided to show the last leg of my PCT hike, Idyllwild to Campo. Once I get the pictures from my brother, hopefully I can finish posting pictures from Crater Lake to Manning Park. It seems a bit disjointed to do it this way, but at least this gives me something to do while on the job search!
I left San Diego on Friday morning, the 22nd of October. My friend Pete arranged a ride for me with one of his friends who was heading up to Mt. San Gorgonio for the weekend. Immediately, I was thrown back into travel mode. It's a liberating sense of freedom that is hard to describe. In some ways, it's a surrender of control. I knew I had to get to Idyllwild, but I was not sure how it would transpire. I knew I would get there eventually, and I was not the least bit concerned how long it would take me. Pete's friend could only take me as far as the 72, about 15 miles west of the town of Hemet. In the past, this would give me all sorts of anxiety. Hemet is only halfway there! How will I make it the rest of the way?
