A beautiful six mile hike as the sun rose. I lingered at the vistas. I was glad I camped where I did- there was a busy camping area and burn area afterwards. But where I camped was quiet and the trees provided shelter.
The red of the sunlight lit everything up and looked like someone went wild with spray paint.
The road crossing for Hwy. 2 is where we hitch into Wrightwood. I got there at 7:30 AM- no traffic! But after waiting a while who else but Granny drives up!!! She was taking MeToo up to another trailhead, and I went along for the ride. It was great hearing about the next section of trail from MeToo, and I really enjoyed seeing Granny again. Then she dropped me and Hog off in Wrightwood. Thanks once again Granny!!!

Had a delicious breakfast at Evergreen with Hog and then Pathfinder joined us- yay!
In town, it was busy with getting breakfast, laundry, resupply, looking at maps, phone calls, and getting fresh food at the Farmers Market- we lucked out visiting town on a Friday.
I'm not going to take a zero day tomorrow. Most everyone else is staying here (including Pathfinder who I've hiked with since the start) but I'm eager to get back on the trail.
