Posted from Forest Ranch, California, United States.
Got our typical 10am start when leaving town. We had to wait for the Belden P.O. to open. Before hiking, we took a quick dip in the river since the day was already hot. The trail climbed ALL DAY! It wasn’t steep, just a constant up. Thankfully, we followed a ravine & were never far from water.
Towards the end of the day, we passed a sign indicating we were leaving the Sierras & entering the Cascades. I didn’t see anything special around, but I don’t really expect to until Mt. Lassen. We camped at Cold Springs with Jim & DJ, the section hikers who have been around since I-80. Tomorrow we’ll hit Chester & the half-way point.
