PCT mile marker 133
Tough day, lots of climbing. Wanted to push for 22 miles, but once I started descending it was incredibly painful on the feet. I was being less the productive putting miles on and doing no damage then good to my feet. So I pulled off trail once I found a stop to fit my tent on a dry river bed.
Great views made all the climbing worth it! I actually prefer to climb then descend.
Hope to make it to Paradise Valley Cafe tomorrow. That's 21+ miles. Water stops are closer together so I'll have less weight to carry.
