Just made it into big bear lake and the first thing I am doing is eating! I got a ride into to town from a trail angel named papa smurf along with 2 other hikers. Man it sure is a real treat to have help from trail angels. I haven’t had to do any real hitch hiking yet! I’m stoked. I will need to resupply here and hopefully take a shower, if I have the funds after buying 5 days worth of food. Then it’s off on the trail either tonight or in the morning towards wright wood. The trail has bee great since whitewater. Lots of climbing and warm dry weather. I even walked passed ‘predators in action’ where there are animal cages right on the trail! I saw 2 grizzly bears and a tiger! So strange! Here’s a few pics from the last 2 days.
