Start: tentsite at mile 1418
End: mile 1440 (cowboy-camped)
Miles covered: 22 (+1 round trip to Burney Falls)
PCT mile marker: 1440/2652
Highlight: A short side trip to Burney Falls. It’s not directly on the PCT, but it’s only an extra mile to see the falls from the top.
Biggest challenge: More 95-degree heat, along with a healthy dose of bushwhacking through brush that had grown so quickly that it covered the trail.

I had to look it up but now I know what “cowboy-camp” means.
Ah yes! Sometimes I forget to define terms that are unique to backpacking. I have camped in the open air, without a shelter, about five times so far.
