Mammoth Lakes Zero

PCT 2018 Day 42, June 3, Sunday.

Start town of Mammoth Lakes

End town of Mammoth Lakes

Miles walked: ZERO

Got food at Von’s and packaged for bear cannister.

Did all the tasks required in town, and ate, and saw a movie, and talked to new friends around the hostel kitchen table. I had talks with Bible, a PCT hiker who ran into major trouble on the trail, caught in a snowstorm. It took him several extra days to hike out, so long that he was reported missing in local news stations. Read his own blog to find out what happened.
