up and down. We sweat a lot.
We left Burney Falls State Park around 4:30 and didn't make it as far
as Steve wanted. We tried cowboy camping again, but ended up having
Mosquitos swarm around our heads, a giant spider crawl onto our tarp
(Steve could hear his steps and that's how we knew he was there), and
heard footsteps in the trees at night. Neither of us slept well.
Steve wanted to try to hike 30 miles. We made it 24. Hung out with
Miss Potatohead throughout the day.
A marathon of a day. Literally. 26.2 miles. Had a snack at deer creek
and saw a deer. Had lunch at butcherknife creek - didn't see any
Only 22 miles to Mt. Shasta. Went down, then up, then back down.
Find the mountain! We took this picture of Mt. Shasta from the ridge.
We didn't even know it was there for 10 minutes because of the smoke.
