Casey and I arrived today in the mountain town of Idyllwild. We are resupplying our food for a 5 day section that will bring us to the town of Big Bear. This week was eventful and beautiful. We sampled rattlesnake, hiked above the lights of Palm Springs, and climbed to 8000 feet above sea level. All is well and we are sinking into the groove of life in the backcountry.
