That is one tired, dirty, stinky Allan.
St. Bernard's Lodge was closed. Happily for us, they decided to cook us breakfast. We feasted on pancakes, bacon, sausage, eggs, hash browns, country potatoes and coffee. Excellent! And they were very, very kind to serve three really stinky patrons.
I'd read that this section of the Pacific Crest Trail is ugly. Boring. It is nothing of the sort. We only met Through Hikers the entire time on the trail. It astounds me that locals don't use this precious and wonderful hiking trail that is, literally, in our backyard.
This was a fun, fun trip. A great adventure. My friends were tolerant of the California miniature humming birds. They gamely carried water and made the best of a very strenuous hike. Thanks guys!
