Trip Notes

We stop by the Spring in the early morning, then head up into the mountains toward Kernville. Along the way, we picked up a gregarious but exhausted fellow whose feet had given up in the middle of a 11 day trek along the Pacific Crest trail. We drove him down to Kernville and greatly enjoyed his company.
