PCT Day 19, Big Bear Lake to mile 286

Day 19
Big Bear Lake to mile 286, 20 miles
Cost: Camped, free

Today in a nutshell: left hostel at 7:30am with 6 others, Paul took us back to the trail. Lovely morning with some cloud cover. Walked through woods, lots of rocks, burnt out areas. Stopped a few times with a fun group of people (Pam, Bangarang, Shaggy, Cool Breeze, Cuban B, Becca, Nomad, Marvin) shared jerky and kit kats and cheetos. Walked 20 miles but for the first time felt I could walk further except 20 miles brought me to a decent campsite by a river where I needed to get water. Camped with Cuban B, Cool Breeze, Pam, Bangarang, Shaggy, Becca & Nomad. Fun evening with a really great bunch of people.

(Not sure why I didn’t take many pictures today…)

  1. Sounds like you are settling into a nice rhythm. I had an opportunity to hike a few miles on the PCT and passed mile 300. You should be through there today or tomorrow.
