The wind blew all night, but we had setup our tents under a big tree and it protected us all night. We started the day by finishing yesterday’s road walk. We went for about 1 mile and found the dirt road, that led to a trail, which led to another trail, that finally got us back to the PCT.  Not many hikers are coming up this way. Most are walking the road all the way to Hiker Town. We are trying to stick to the trail. As we hiked the ridge west, we went through some very beautiful country of green grass and oak trees. Mama Raven could not keep her camera in her pocket. In the afternoon, the clouds rolled over the ridge top and we hiked up into them. When we were on the south side of the ridge, the wind blew hard. It was cold and everywhere you looked was thick chaparral. Fog was everywhere. The trail finally crossed to the north side and the weather got nicer. It was still foggy but there was no wind and the chaparral was replaced with oaks and grassy hills. Ann took several hundred pictures. She really enjoyed this place.
Finally, after miles of walking west, the trail turned north and headed down to the Mojave Desert. Tomorrow we will cross the Mojave. It will take us several days to get across and over towards Tehachapi, our next food drop.DSC02389-5-15-16
