[pct-l] Pictures and Barrel Springs

Hi y'all

Re: what to take pictures of

I wish that we had taken pictures of all the towns and the 
trail angels.  Also a picture of each and every campsite, 
including the very nasty ones (like the cow-shit dam at the 
Kelso Valley Road spring).

We did take pictures of all our rides when we hitched back to
the Bay area from Seiad Valley -- very interesting people,
4 out of 5 were women.  These are good for convincing people
that hitching isn't as dangerous as they thought.

If you don't know what poison oak looks like, be careful here.  
Uphill from the trough was the most poison-oakey spot I saw 
on the whole PCT, except for some spots between the Mojave River
and Silverwood Lake.
