Highlight: Sometimes the best thing is just a super-light pack, the consequence of eating almost everything before heading into the next town for resupply.
Biggest challenge: Breaking through all of the spiderwebs across the trail first thing in the morning. (And the occasional mosquito, fly, gnat, or tiny insect that I haven’t been able to identify. They haven’t been as bad as they were in the Sierra section, but they never went away completely.)
