4/18/18. Got up early and hit the trail. Wanted to get a Wrightwood to pick up some packages. It was chilly this morning but warmed up quickly.
Hiked about 11 miles and climbed to 8400 feet. Great views of the mountains around us. I passed through a ski resort then down to highway 2 and hitched a ride to Wrightwood.
I have been thinking a lot about the principle of leave no trace. I have thoroughly enjoyed the efforts of others to maintain his wilderness. If I do see trash I try to pick up three pieces a day.
Wrightwood is a very hiker friendly town. Since my packages didn’t arrive until late I decided to spend the night and get up early the next day and head up over the mountains.
