PCT Day 6, Stagecoach Trails RV resort to mile 94.5

Day 6 Stagecoach Trails RV resort to mile 94.5, 17.5 miles
Cost: $0

Today in a nutshell: More coyotes howling through the night, I got a sleep in as we had arranged a taxi to pick us up at 6:30am and take us back to the trail, a heavy pack carrying 6 litres of water and 4 days of food for a 32 mile stretch with a possible cache or a tank with dead mice, switchback after switchback, a wonderful surprise to see the 3rd gate cache at mile 91 fully stocked (thank you Trail Angels!), scorching heat, 1 snake (thin, black with a yellow stripe, possibly a garter snake?), spectacular views and a wonderful camp site just off the trail at mile 94.5 with even more amazing views!

There are so many types of cacti out here!

My blisters are getting angry so I’m looking forward to arriving at Warner Springs tomorrow as there is apparently a “blister service” there and also real food 🙂

  2. Hope you have got lots of cushioned blister plasters! Gaiters should keep them cleaner. Photos are fantastic. It looks damn hot! What temp. is it? How come the caches are not raided by the wildlife?

  3. I’m loving your coverage of all your hikes! You’re truly an inspiration. I have a potentially weird question, but as someone who has an interest in eventually hiking the PCT, how do you keep your cheese properly stored? Or did you buy ones that can sit out at room temperature for a week or so?
