The hike today continued through the 2009 Station Fire burn area and the challenges continued too. More downed trees (Deb is now covered in soot), overgrown shrubs (taller than Deb), and the constant need to be on the lookout for poodle-dog bush.
Fortunately, the poodle-dog bush was mostly avoidable and we are now past the Station Fire.
We got water at the North Forks Ranger Station and continue on a few more miles and are now camped under the stars.
Tomorrow we will reach Agua Dulce, where we plan to take a zero day Saturday.
