PCT Day 65... The Octopus


Two other people from Nirvana’s group made it to camp last night after we went to bed, and they were asleep as I packed up my gear. The only others who were awake were Snickers and Bandit, and they left camp just before I did. Nirvana was still asleep. I had to wake him up since we forgot to take a photo together. After we took a photo, I hit the trail and he went back to sleep.

Not much happened today, most of the day was spent hiking in a canyon, down and then up it. I passed Snickers and Bandit soon after leaving camp. The weather was warm and humid. About an hour after I stopped for a lunch break at the top of the canyon, I passed a sign that said The Octopus. I have no idea what it was for; the forest looked exactly the same as before. Just after the sign, I ran into a day hiker who gave me an apple. I was very grateful, especially for fresh fruit.


I got to camp at 5:30pm. I did not want to get all the way to town today since that would mean I would have to find a room somewhere, so I set up camp. There was a couple at camp who were already in their tent. We were joined by another couple who knew the others and had been on their tails for a while now and finally caught up with them.

Just before I finished the blog, Snickers came up the trail, and said hi, he was camped a little away and could see my tarp. He told me if Nirvana came up, to let him know where they were camped.
