7/27/18 Hiked 13.6 miles to trail 1599.7. Got up early and was on the trail my 5 AM with a headlamp. Pushed hard throughout the morning and arrived at the road before 11 AM.
I had an interesting view of Mount Shasta poking up through the smoke. Once I got on the road to Etna I as able to hitch a ride where Layne Howell met me at took me to his home for a couple days off the trail.
