Weekend with Chris and Em
Well Jon and I had the pleasure of spending the weekend with Chris and Emily! We met them in Cassel, CA, which is approx. 50 miles northwest of Redding (5 hour drive north of San Francisco). They hiked in a 30 mile day (their biggest yet) to make it in Friday night. We hiked 4 miles on Saturday in the blistering heat and then went swimming and drank lots of beer. We fed them steaks and pasta and shrimp and fresh veggies and fruit until they could hardly move they were so full. And sadly, on Sunday we put them back on the trail and headed home to SF. They are more than half way done and have the hardest part behind them, so they seemed in good spirits.
