I'm at the Starbucks in Ridgecrest. (Yes, I could just get a smartphone and then I'd have the Internet everywhere, but that'd be stupid at this point, and scrounging wireless reminds me of the good old days on trail mastering the ins and outs of vagrancy--payphones and the US Postal Service.) Spent the night at Walker Pass Campground near/on the PCT last night. Super windy. Headed to Death Valley right now, will probably look for a trail in the northern half where I've spent less time, then circle north around the Canyon through Utah first before heading to the South Rim--Mountain Meadows Massacre site and Colorado City are calling me.
