At about eight this morning I hit the 1,000-mile mark, appropriately enough at a thigh-deep stream crossing. Only 1,650 to go until Canada!
Otherwise it was a solid day. I put in more than 20 miles to reach Sonora Pass and hitchhiked with some other PCTers to a town called Bridgeport, where I’m sleeping tonight in a bed for the first time in weeks. Even the hiking today was easier and more scenic than in recent days, concluding with an eight-mile stretch above 10,000 feet along a high ridge. Looking forward to hitting the trail again tomorrow with fresh legs.
