My wife and I opted for a day of Trail Magic to boost our spirits and help some hikers! We headed south from the Panther Creek area in Washington. It was an incredibly hot day but well worth the effort. We met many fine Northbounders and Southbounders and handed out our usual Oreo Cookies and Starbucks Via coffee packets. The list of thru-hikers we met were as follows:
Baby Pea from Wales – Gave him a ride to Carson general store from PCT road intersection
Northbounders Freebird and his wife, from Austria
Northbounder JP (Jet Propulsion), from Germany
Northbounders RAZ and OBAL (One BadAss Lady) Unbranded – Doing a 2600 mile loop around PCT, PNW and Oregon Trails (don’t remember exactly but sounded tough)?
Southbounder Kuba, from Maine
Southbounders Wink and Peach
A great group of thru-hikers and we wished them well and to have a safe journey!
