I had a wonderful birthday yesterday! I enjoyed the company of my hubby, Yannick and Shirley, Margaret and Bill, and another hiker named Chuck. I took a nice hot bath, rested in bed, ate an amazing meal that Margaret prepared, and was surprised by a tower of cheesecake and doughnuts with a candle on top! I was so full that I had to go lay down!
I love how being on the trail has reminded me of how amazing some essential things are...When asked what I wanted for my birthday, I was completely serious when I said a bed and a warm room. Well first I asked to sleep in for 15 minutes more, and hubby let me go for 17 minutes! What a guy! But the other two things are what I got and I couldn't have been more pleased...
I'm going to post some pictures in sections and I hope you enjoy the trail some more from our eyes! What an adventure...I just need to stop losing weight...My butt is disappearing! (I'm not joking) :)
The pictures below are from the day of my birthday, and then this morning. The terrain here in the Sierra Buttes is beautiful but painfully rocky in some areas! We had to descend down into Sierra City (31 switchbacks I believe) and as I counted them, when we got to 27 I got a picture for my "27th" birthday :)
