Photos by Bob, Dan S., Jerry and Linda

his was a very special hike. We had just scouted the hike after Francie alerted us to it. Fortunately the weather held and we had short sleeve weather at 7,000 feet. My selling job seemed to work and we had 17 hikers, all of whom loved the hike, with its astounding views. 

The highlight of the hike was coming upon a German PCT hiker, Sabine Willmann, Sabineworking on something on the ground. She had written 4000 K and was about to celebrate 2500 miles of PCT all by herself. After a fun conversation I said I would get her a steak, a shower, and a beer when she got to Ashland where she was to finish. She was delightful and we gave her suitable applause. Later at Caldera we decided to help her celebrate conquering the PCT in Ashland when she arrives. To be developed.

She included us in her blog and I told her I would host a party for her with those on the hike and invited her to stay with us at Kerr manor. Diane and I lived very close to where she comes from in the Black Forest. 

 

So a very invigorating day with a perfect hike in perfect weather. Spectacular views and good company. This will be a regular Monday hike.
