A very nice day to be out in the fresh air! We were feeling pretty good so we extended the hike out past 9 miles. :0 We’ve been going to this area frequently since it’s close to home, and we’ve been getting out on the late side.
We didn’t see any animals, or people, today. A quiet day and plenty of solitude, which we prefer. It’s tough to go out and feel so good when we know that the pandemic is raging on. 😦 Well, we’ll be keeping our distance from people until we can receive the vaccines.
We’ve started to think about where we might want to go, on a hiking vacation, when the pandemic becomes just a horrible memory. It just gives us something to look forward to, even if it isn’t in the near future.
I did look into the status of permits at the PCTA website, and was surprised to see that they would be issued for 2021! Sadly, we have no plans to participate in any Pacific Crest Trail activities, in 2021, but might enjoy watching others attempt this journey?
Take care and be safe!
