  • Day108

    Mont Eddy

    July 18, 2017 in the United States

    Un monsieur avec qui j'avais échangé quelques mots dans le stationnement du Trailhead (où j'ai dormis), m'a offert de les accompagner, lui, son chien, et une amie botaniste (de passe temps et non de profession) qui allait arriver le lendemain matin. J'ai hésité, j'aime mes moments à moi seule dans la montagne. En même temps, quelle chance de partager une journée avec des gens encore plus passionné des fleures sauvage que moi.

    Je me suis donc mis sur la route accompagné de Tom, Lylia (le chien) et Kijrsten. Quelle super belle journée! Il avait tant de différents sortes de fleures. C'était magnifique! Kijrsten était venu faire cette même randonnée déjà trois fois au mois de juin pour photographier une certaine plante qui ne pousse qu'ici! Elle connaissait presque toutes les noms et à quelle famille elles appartiennent.

    Nous avons passé des petits ruisseaux, des lacs alpins, puis au sommet nous avons pris une longue pause avec une vue sur le Mont Shasta. Tout le long nous avons pris de nombreuses photos. C'était si différent de la veille sur Mont Shasta où je suis monté et redescendu en peu de temps. Il n'avait eu que de la roche et de la neige. Là nous avons pris tout notre temps et sommes revenu à la vanne bien plus tard qui si j'avais fait la randonnée seule, mais j'ai vraiment apprécié la journée, la rencontre, la conversation, le partage.

    J'ai dormi encore une fois sur place. C'était si tranquille, si paisible.

    Le sentier pour le Mont Eddy passe en parti sur le PCT (Pacific Crest Trail), un sentier qui commence à la frontière mexicaine et monte jusqu'au Canada, 4265 km au total. Je m'attendais pas de voir au tant de "through-hikers", ceux qui font tout le sentier d'un coup. Je crois que c'est très "à la mode". Je crois pas non plus que tu as la vraie déconnexion du reste du monde si tu es toujours en compagnie. Cela étant dis, c'est tout un exploit. Pour ma part je suis contente de voyager dans ma vanne, c'est pas mal plus confortable ;)

    Two weeks and two days in :

    October 4, 2016 in the United States

    I can not believe I left Portland 16 days ago!

    I can't believe I've ridden 500 miles.... on a bicycle!

    Even though I'm getting up everyday and I'm doing this, it still really hasn't sunk in what I'm doing. it feels like it's been a really long time, and I have done a lot, but compared to the whole trip I'm just getting started.

    It really makes my stomach flip when I look at the entire map of the United States. I've traveled about an inch. It's taken me 16 days to ride my bicycle an inch!

    Memphis is faaaaaaaaaaaaar away!

    I am hoping for some flatter terrain in the near future, so I can make up some time.

    Today I had to tackle a mountain that took me up 2800 feet ... Twice. The first one wasn't quite as big, but still big. I did have a little help today though. There was road work going on and they wouldn't let me ride, so they had to load my bike on a truck and took me a mile and a half up the mountain. Kind of felt like I was cheating, but I'm sure there's a mountain in my (near) future that will be twice as hard, and I'll forget all about it.

    It was chilly and rainy again. I got poured on coming down both inclines. It is really cold when you're going 20 miles an hour and you're wet.

    I actually had a reward after climbing so much. Coming down the second mountain i barely had to pedal for almost 8 miles. About thirty minutes. It was awesome! Even cold and wet.

    Saw a couple of backpackers coming off the trail as I was going down. There was only time for a quick hello as I biked past, but in that second, with only a quick exchange of smiles, we made a connection. They instantly became part of my story. These two guys with huge smiles on their faces as they walked off the trail and took off their backpacks. Even though we were getting pelted by rain, we were so happy to be so close to the town that we had worked so hard to get to.

    Willow Creek.

    It was a cute, tiny town nestled in the middle of mountains. I liked it instantly, but as I started to look around I realize that there were lots of.... hippies... They were everywhere! I felt like I was in an episode of Southpark.

    Earlier that day, a woman that was part of the road construction crew, warned me about the hippies near Willow Creek. She said to watch out. That they would steal from you while you're sleeping. I don't know how true that is, but I locked my bike up when I went in to get something to eat.

    After an overpriced, but delicious meal at the mexican restaurant. I biked another 10 miles.
    Totaling 40 for the day.

    I found a primitive campground in Burnt Ranch (wonder how this town got It's name) I am glad that I didn't have to find a place to sleep tonight, but showers would have been lovely... it's been 2 days

    I splurged and made a campfire. I roasted salami and cheese over the fire for dinner, and ate it with my last piece of flatbread.

    It looks like the big mountains are behind me, hopefully. I'd like to try to make it the 50 miles to Weavervilleill tomorrow.

    Day 17 : Almost a perfect day

    October 5, 2016 in the United States

    Had some people come to the campground last night that stayed up late, and were super loud. The bad thing about primitive campgrounds is if there are any problems no one is there to take care of it.
    I had the entire campground to myself before they came.

    Despite the fact that I didn't get much sleep; I was up early. I had to take a little extra time to do some much needed bike maintenance.

    It was a little cool and drizzly when I woke up, but after 1 o'clock the sun came out, and I got to see beautiful blue skies for the first time in a few days.

    Today's ride was spectacular! 299 ran along the Trinity River in the Shasta-Trinity national Forest; through huge tree covered mountains. Because it ran next to the river, the road stayed pretty flat. Not having to struggle left me to focus more on the beautiful scenery around me.

    A couple of miles from my starting point there was some major road work. Both directions of traffic took turns alternating through several miles of construction that took almost half an hour to get through. This left me with the road to myself for long stretches of time.

    What an extraordinary feeling to be surrounded with nature without another soul anywhere around.

    The first 35 miles of my day could not have been any more perfect. Then came the mountain. 3 miles of an insanely steep climb. Made even harder by the fact that it was nearing the end of my day. I was already worn out. It took me 2 hours to get to the top. I was so frustrated that the ride down wasn't even fun.

    At the bottom of that hill was the pretty town of Weaverville. There was some sort of festival going on with music and food. I wish it would have been earlier in the day, and I wasn't so tired. I really would have enjoyed spending some time there, but it was getting late and I had to find a campground.

    I rode 7 more miles before I found the Douglas campground. It's a beautiful spot right on the river. I had to go down a steep hill to get here, so I already know how my day's going to begin tomorrow. Yay me!

    Weaverville, ca

    August 7, 2014 in the United States

    Trinity River is very nice. David likes it a lot. He wants to take the kids back to camp at Big Flat Campground.

    Never trust two hippies. The 299 is worse than it looks on paper. Cal Trans has a lot to do with it, we have hit 5 or so Cal Trans spots. I think Cal Trans is the only employer around here.

    This road is so stinkin curvy.
