Yesterday the Trinity Alps - Today the Russian Wilderness - Assume! Lunch on top of a rock with great views all around, then around the mountain and into the Russian Wilderness. A really great section with lots of rocky mountains, lakes, and a cool view from a mountain pass overlooking Taylor Lake. Crossed the 1600 mile mark and met Seahag and Robo-knee.
I got a hitch from a drug runner to the Hiker Hut in Etna. The hiker hut had bikes to borrow, a bunkroom, tv, and a small kitchen. I decided to camp outside and after a shower I hiked into town as it was too dark for the bikes. Turns out this small town is not open late. Only restaurant open was Bob's a good distance away. But nice food and I slipped in just before closing.
