May 27: Memorial Day: after a perfect day, we decided to push out some big miles -- 22.5 to be exact. And we created a perfectly exhausting day! We started hiking through farmland and fields, which was a change from the ridge line.
We hiked by one of the oldest oak tree in the south.
And then climbed back up into elevation.
In a very fitting coincidence, we passed by the Audie Murphy monument on Memorial Day. He was the most highly decorated soldier in WWII and died in a plane crash close to the memorial.
By the time we reached Pickle Branch Shelter ( which did NOT have a big barrel of pickles to eat!) we were exhausted. Too tired to set up tents, Subaru, Acorn, and I rocked the shelter.
Hi, I'm Heather, AKA "Pink Lady". Welcome to my blog. I'm so excited to share my adventures as I embark on a thru-hike of the Pacific Crest Trail. While you're here, be sure to check out the charity I'm hiking for: Devoted2Children a great organization which funds a home for orphaned children in Haiti.
