Pacific Crest Trail (2018) 60: Zen

Sunday, July 29, 2018 – 15.80 miles

During this hike, I’ve been thinking about little other than the trail – maybe on my other hikes my mind learned to be zen – but this morning my thoughts kept drifting to Fifty Shades of Grey. I’ve never read the books, but I did read the hilarious Snark Squad commentary and I kept thinking the phrase ‘My mother was a crack whore, Anastasia. Now to go sleep.’ and laughing to myself. Maybe my thoughts went in that direction because I’ve been listening to East of Eden. My apologies to John Steinbeck…


Forest walking today with lakes and views back to Mt. Jefferson.


My throat started feeling sore the day I left Bend, and now that’s evolved into nausea, so I decided to skip the store at Olallie Lake Resort.


I random camped in the forest somewhere and ate snacks for supper.

When I opened my Notes app to write a journal entry for today, I discovered that my previous journal entries had disappeared along with all of the other content under one of my email addresses. I was gutted since I was weeks behind on posting them, therefore all those entries are gone. Possibly I neglected to lock the phone before putting it into my pocket and dodgy things were happening with my leg, or maybe it’s a phone issue (naturally, I would prefer to blame the phone). I’ll reconstruct the entries from memory, but I regret not being able to report on the exact degree of mosquito evil every day.
