May 17. We left camp around 7am, walked two miles to a highway crossing. We decided for a 6 miles road walk to avoid the endangered species detour of the PCT.
The PCT itself is closed around here for several miles to protect the habitat of an endangered frog species actually. Walking along the highway was a new experience including some tunnels. Now I know why my headlamp has a blinking mode as well.
Coming back to trail, we quickly reached the 400 miles marker! That’s 640km… 😁👍🏻
The gang at mile 400 marker
We pushed on to water at mile 411, camped shortly after at 412.
That was a good and long day. I feel I keep pushing my limits. Good feeling to be really tired in the evening and looking back at a 20+ miles day.
