Train Time

Because the train we caught left so early in the morning (4:56am) we had no choice but to get to Dunsmuir and stay there for the night. We got in to incredible heat and hid in the shade of a tree for a while figuring out where to stay. There were only three hotels within […]

Sandwich Magic

We woke up early to finish the rest of the climb before it got too hot. Apparently it was the longest climb on trail, but it’s behind us now. It was long, and kind of crazily hot considering how long it was. We weren’t planning on stopping on the way up but we had to, […]

The Little Things

There are a lot of little things out here. Things that don’t make up a full post but they are part of our life.  Technology:  I hate to admit it, but we have come to rely on our technology. We came out here with a couple of different resources. We had Yogi’s pages for in […]
