Not the ideal 32 mile "rehab" hike to come back to trail 3 weeks after rolling my ankle. After 5,000 feet of ascent, Lucky Strike begins the longest descent on the PCT - 10,000 feet along the Fuller Ridge atop Mt. San Jacinto into Cabazon and Palm Desert below. Welcome to re-rolling my left ankle and adding a twisted right knee for good luck. My body parts are filing for divorce. I've requested counseling to see if the marriage can still be saved. "Why do people break up? And turn around and make up?Leeeeeet's stay together". PCT miles 186.5 to 209.5

Live simple. Live small. Live well.
