My wife and I spent the day providing trail magic along a four mile PCT section on the north side of the Warm Springs Indian Reservation, in northern Oregon. We really didn’t expect to see so many thru-hikers and we almost ran out of Oreos and coffee packets. We met 17 northbound thru-hikers, two Southbounders and a few section hikers. We were grateful to have such pleasant weather with temperatures mostly in the 70’s, and the occasional wind for additional cooling! It’s nice to meet so many wonderful hikers along the trail and have great conversations.
