Hiked the next segment of our PCT hike (Hwy 78 to Barrel Spring, aka the San Felipe Hills)on Jan. 16th. The day was misty and cold, approx 44 degrees.

Based on previous posts, these were the ideal conditions for this usually hot & long hike. We hiked the approximate 24 miles rather fairly quickly. The trail was free of debris or overgrown brush and this made for a nice and yes, maddening hike. With so many canyon wash turns, it will be nice to hit some straight-aways sometime soon.
