Hiked last night till dark with Magnet from Prescott Az. Got up early and hiked solo for just a little while and ran into Quoi from Montreal Canada whom I have hike with often since the start. I have met many wonderful people from all over world all with great stories of there lives that have enriched my understanding of how we can grow from our challenges.
Today I pushed hard with Magnet, Quoi or solo and gained a better appreciation of the desert color.
My goal and motivation at times especially the 5 miles was to make to the Paradise Cafe for a the best hamburgers on the 4/3/18. PCT.
The owner and staff were very helpful and allowed us to sleep on the deck for the night. Long but wonderful day of 23 miles.
