Day 18: Mission Creek to Mission Springs Trail Camp

We awoke to find ants marching around and under our tent. It took a little extra time shaking the ants off everything before we were ready to hike.

Once we started hiking the Pacific Crest Trail it was along the very pretty Mission Creek. The creek was flowing and flowers blooming.

We are regaining most of the elevation we lost descending from the San Jacinto’s a few days ago, and are climbing toward the mountain community of Big Bear. Today we climbed about 5,000 feet.
