500 Miles!

Nathaniel Farmer:  Today we passed mile 500 and tomorrow we attempt our first 30+ mile day.  We walk the LA aqueduct so it shouldn’t be all that bad right?

I ditched my shoes almost 90 miles ago and have been hiking in sandals.  It’s the price I pay for not ordering my shoes soon enough.  I’ll switch back into shoes for the Sierra Nevada mountains.

Since Wrightwood our daily mileage has been: 16 (late start/snow), 28, 26, 24 and 25.  We’ve gone through a KOA campground, Agua Dulce, Casa de Luna and are now at Hiker Town. A nice and semi-creepy place.

Casa de Luna was one of the coolest stops on the trip thus far thanks so much to the Andersons for taking care of so many hikers!
