Out of Tehachapi

PCT 2018 Day 25, May 17, Thursday.

Start mile 566.5 Highway 58, Cameron Road exit

End campsites at mile 592.9

Miles walked: 26.4

Chip, Voon, and I take the 6:15 intercity bus to Cameron Road exit of highway 58, and resume our hike. Chip and I hike together much of the morning, and I lag behind in the afternoon. The trail starts at 3.8k elevation, rising to 6k, heading generally north. Cool and breezy, we hike a fast pace, and the climb seems easy, as we talk on the way up. The first water source is at 18 miles, where we meet Hotdog and Pinto. We carry enough water to dry camp, for the next source is 25 miles away. Wind turbines are with us all day, as is the cold wind. The camping area is popular, with over a dozen tent sites spread out, partially hidden.
