After enjoying the fruits of your labors, we all need a place to chill. This is that place. Totally senseless irrelevant banter encouraged.

Historically, censorship has always been viewed as a tyrannical power grab. Ignore that, and know in your heart, that this time...this time ,it is a righteous defense of the public's health.

And A privilege to be a guest in this corporeal realm

Checking in from the Trinity Alps wilderness, line of sight to Scotts Valley Down Yonder.

All Trails seem to go up even when they're supposed to go down. Averaging at 7,000' now. Was at sea level

In Callahan town now, 5th resupply 60 days days out. Seasons are changing, Spring flowers gone; summer flowers on. Sunset earlier, geology and forest changing, feel distinctly in California now.
Spruces and coastal fog, distance past. Hello sugar pines and granite.

What's up Intro? That sucks about the fire closures...

On a positive note: Shit is cool as hell (for me). Your journey, although cut short, is much appreciated as I've been lurkin'.

Now that I'm all caught up, Thanks for the pics.
The carnivorous looks pretty badass.. Do we know a name on that?

Was hoping you'd be west of all that. :frown:
Otherwise seems like things are going well?
Seeing many other folks on the trail?
