Day 98: July 9th
Mile 1296.3 to Mile 1317.9
Today was a day of climbing as we continued the climb out of Belden and then made the usual climbs that the Pacific Crest Trail makes as it meanders across mountains. We climbed 4,700 total feet today.
We are about 17 miles from the town of Chester, CA where we have a package waiting for us at the post office, and where we have to buy more food for the next leg of our journey. Trail food is getting a little boring at this point but we eat it anyway.
We also passed the 1,300 mile mark this morning. The 100’s are beginning to go by faster now!
