The PCT

Mom was very excited to hike part of the Pacific Crest Trail (PCT).  We think it was cuz Reese Witherspoon made a movie called "Wild" about it but she says not.


So we checked the signs and headed into the wilderness!


It was very lush!


Lots of smells!


Hmmm . . . 




Sometimes we waited for mom so she wouldn't get lost.  She was still whining about us trying to kill her the day before.



We got thirsty so dad had a water bowl for us.  Stanley always gets the first drink cuz he has a big head.


Then my turn.



Then we cooled off our paws!





There were lots of trees!




After we finished we went to the Gourmet Hot Dogs & Ice Cream store, located next door to the Post Office.  Through hikers pick up pre arranged supply packages at the post office then get ice cream.  We saw lots of them and mom talked to a few.  A few days later hikers had to be rescued from the PCT due to the wildfire!  Our adventure continues!

Hot dogs and I Scream are a well deserved reward after that wonderful trek.
Mom loved that movie Wild and she really likes Reese too. Have you seen Sweet Home Alabama? It is hilarious!

I saw a bit of the film with Reese Witherspoon and it looked amazing, but I think I would have gotten severely lost! And seeing all those green trees... they all look alike!

Some of those signs seemed a bit confusing since they were pointing in different directions for the same trail. We're glad you had a nice hike and made it back to where you started.

Stanley has a big head....bwahaahaa! Our friend did the entire trail from Mexico. After the 'Wild' movie, it has become busier and more user friendly. But we still wouldn't do it! The section you did is just beautiful!

Mom would love to do that, but Dad's allergies would be a huge problem:( We would love to run that trail and then get some hot dogs and ice cream too.

You are two very brave dogs to be going on all these walks. I don't know if we could have done it. We are warm spots on the recliner kind of dogs. We tip our tail to you.

Ghostwriter says that place reminds her of the walks she used to take with her family at Cook Forest in PA.

"The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep." And loads of walks.
