Mile: 1641.2 to 1653
up/down: 1400/2700 feet
Starting off with a creek crossing for breakfast, we blasted out the remaining miles to Seiad Valley and our awaiting friends Dan and Brenda. We skipped the ugly highway road walk that takes you miles upstream on the Klamath River to a bridge and back again to town. The truck was popular as every hiker we passed wanted a ride! Before it was over we had 11 hikers in the truck and in the back! Road walks suck and we all HATE doing them.
The RV is parked by the river (with fledgling Ospreys!) and we'll hang here and avoid the ugly heat. We may walk out a couple miles this evening. If so I'll come back and edit this post. There's another monster 4000 plus foot climb coming to get out of here.
Dan had clippers so we had hair cut day too!
