Day 26...Powerhouse Fire Detour...A Nero for Me

Day 26
7 miles
PCT mile 517

Miles 478-511 of the PCT are closed due to 2013 Powerhouse Fire. There's a 20 mile road walk option, that brings you to Hikertown at mile 517. 

I had a 7 mile hike into the trail closure this morning. At this point I decided to forego the road walk take a nero. I wasn't on my game, I was have some new aches that were nagging me yesterday too and figured my body was protesting me to push it any harder. In hindsight I should have taken a zero at Hiker Heaven, but did the next best thing and took a nero today. I was done hiking by 9:30am and had the whole day to rest. 

The Anderson's picked me up from Green Valley Ranger Station and I went back to Casa de Luna to chill and figure a ride up to Hikertown. Shortly there after I was joined by Hans Pilgrim, Lady Luck and Snake Charmer. We found a trail angel to give us a ride from Casa de Luna to Hikertown, where we'll all jump back on the trail tomorrow morning.
