We have finally made it to the town of Agua Dulce and 455 miles complete. In this little town there is a couple whose house is known as Hiker Heaven and the name fits perfectly. We have a mobile home to stay in and each have our own rooms and a full kitchen. They also have a fleet of bikes to get around town. So this has been an amazing stay with The Saufleys and there huge family of dogs, cats, and horses. The next 180 miles of trail will be the hottest part of the trail. The only good part about this is that we are done with snow untill the high sierras. We also will be passing through part of the Mojave desert where the temperatures can climb into the hundreds. In these area we will be carrying water for 30 to 40 miles in the extreme heat. But after nine days of this we will be in Lake Isabella and waiting for the snowfall to melt in the high sierras. Also giving our bodies a break from everything.
My name is Andy Boone and I am hiking the Pacific Crest Trail with a good friend of mine Mosa Shayan. We are working our way from the Mexico/US boarder to the Canada/US boarder. There is about 2,600 miles of trail through the best mountains out west. We start in the middle of the desert and hike north 700 miles to the start of the Sierra Nevada. Then after 900 miles of the Sierra Nevadas we reach Oregon and the Cascade range that we follow up through Washington to Canada.... full info
