Thank God! Nooooo, I didn't mean it that way. ; )
You have to have faith. How else could you have a blessed time, scramble a
14,000 footer, not to mention bump into a cute blonde, ranger slash
I think you're absolutely going to love the PCT, as long as you don't get
spoiled by the Rockies in the meantime.
By the way, did you do a loop or a section between trailheads? CT, CDT or
other trail(s), and how was the navigation? What did you cook on?
Curious mind, wants to know.
