[pct-l] wave of pct hikers hits ...

Thanks for the update; glad to hear that these folks made it through the

BTW, does anyone have contact info for the Valkyries (Emily, Genevieve, and
Pamela)? I just found out last night that my sister gave them showers, food,

known that before we met them last week; something else to talk about!

My sister isn't a well-known trail angel, but since we hiked through in '77
(when she treated us royally), she's been on the lookout for PCT hikers
every spring, taking 'em in whenever she spots one.
