Campsite at Mile 1737.45 to Paved Dead Indian Memorial Road

Hiked and hiked some more. 

We are hiking through forests with occasional views of mountains. 

Got up this morning and the temperature was in the 40s and the day stayed reasonably cool, a welcome change in the weather. 

We passed the 900 miles to go point today. Someone made a nice 900 sign out of pine cones. 

We met two women, Pop Tart and Flower, who are aiming for the self supported fastest time for the PCT. they are trying to finish the trail in 60 days or less, hiking 50 miles or more per day. They seemed very upbeat at this point, I hope they can keep up the pace.

Flower - She had to skip the fire closure, and thus her FKT attempt ended, but she kept going to Mexico, making it in 67 days total.

Their FKT (Fastest Known Time) attempt of the PCT didn't work out, since the trail was closed in the Seiad Valley area that we just hiked through. But there were a couple good articles about their attempt, which began as separate efforts. https://thetrek.co/pacific-crest-trail/the-why-2/
