in this episode I take a quick solo hike up the Deer Springs Trail to the summit of Suicide Rock in Idyllwild California. Since this is the first hike I’ve done in this area since the tragic Mountain Fire that burned over 9,000 acres here last summer I wasn’t exactly sure if the trail was even open .

I also wore my luna Sandals and a Mountain Hardwear Elkkommando Hiking Kilt and tested out a vintage piece of military gear… A Swiss Army Breadbag.

In this episode I talk a little about the unusualy dry weather we’re having, the Pacific Crest Trail and our adventure to visit Eagle Rock. This spring has been unusual to say the least. We’re having 100 degree heat and raging wildfires already and now they are talking about an El Niño Weather pattern setting up for this fall.  I can’t wait.

I also give some interesting facts about the 2650 mile Pacific Crest Trail and interview two hikers we meet on our hike along the PCT to Eagle Rock. Matt and Bruce took a few minutes to talk about their adventure along the P.C.T. and shared some stories along the way.
