Start: tentsite at 1615
End: tentsite at mile 1638
Miles covered: 23
PCT mile marker: 1638/2652
Highlight: More hillside flowers. (Honorable mention: My healthiest trail meal so far–tuna, avocado, and spinach on a tortilla.)
Biggest challenge: Increasingly smoky air. The smoke comes and goes, depending on wind patterns and elevation, but most of the time the air quality is poor.
