Start: Summit Lake
End: Shelter Cove
Miles covered: 16 (+1 in town)
PCT mile marker: 1906/2652
Highlight: Pizza, beer, and swimming at Shelter Cove. (Honorable mention: It’s always fun seeing people on the trail after many months. I remembered Katie from day 19, in the desert, because we had the same funky shorts.)
Biggest challenge: Managing my sore foot. Everything else about the day was easy, so taking care of my foot was the only concern. I ordered a pair of special shoe inserts to pick up in a few days.
