Day 118: up and over and around and loop de loop and down and loggers and castella and and and…

Start: 1482.18 Squaw valley creek
End: 1498.65 Castella

Got up a little early, climbed ‘the’ hill before it got hot, was making superb time and then discovered I had really good LTE on my phone and Internet cracked for an hour or so. Of course once I made it to town my data connection was terribad.
.
The trail had at least five miles of unnecessary windy ups and downs. In the mean time I crossed paths with a logging crew who had their equipment triple anchored on trees with the cables going over my head and cutting through the trees they were using as anchors… It felt like one of the less safe moments on the trail.
.
Got to Interstate 5 and got a two mile ride from a salty miner. He had a neat curio in his pickup, a chunk of blue obsidian. Never heard of such a thing.
.
Ate, showered, ate, drank, relaxed for several hours.
.
One thing odd right now… The last several nights after 95+ degree days cooled right off and was pleasant by 9pm. It is 10:50 tonight and is just now finally getting close to pleasant.
.
Oh yeah… And then there is the woman who drove up in her car and bummed cigarettes from people lying down trying to sleep. W.T.F. Mate?
