Day 154, August 24th, 2014

Finally completed the Pacific Crest Trail!  Feel mostly tired but glad for the closure. 

Day 153, August 23rd, 2014

Last full day on the trail, last night camping out.  For once a nice day, did eighteen hard miles.  Only 14 miles to the lodge at Manning State Park, Canada. 

It will be a relief when over.  These last three weeks have been a hard slog.

The DSLR is far to heavy for this type of hike.  I think it really does come down to pack weight.  Under 35 pounds is golden, above, forget-about-it!

Day 152, August 22nd, 2014

Made 21 miles today.  Eager to finish, it's been cold and wet.  Will shoot for around 18 miles tomorrow and finish on Sunday in Canada.

Some of todays views attached.

Day 151, August 21st, 2014

Did 18 miles today.  Waiting for water to purify so I can take some Ibprofien.  Looks Luke a thunderstorm rolling in.  Fun wet night to look forward to.  Hopefully it will hold off to after dinner.

Day 150, August 20th, 2014

Not much to report.  Hiked 17 miles to this lovely bridge.  At least it gave me a campsite.  Otherwise was a nice day but all forest hiking, no good views.  I did get a couple of good pictures of a fine looking Grouse with the Canon.
