19 June - Day 59 - Mammoth Relief

From the campsite at Deer Creek (Mile 901.1) to Mammoth Pass Trail at Lower Crater Meadow (904.1)

Total PCT Miles Hiked Today: 3
Total Miles Hiked Today: 6.5

Pan here.

We hiked into the parking lot and Rubylocks immediately yogi'd us a ride into town! Awesome.

But as soon as we registered at Motel 6, my ankle and foot swelled to surprising size - (I mean even as we stood there!)

Now come a few days of eating and rest, ice & foot elevation. Meanwhile, Dionysus is feeling much less pain - so he appears to be on the mend.

We have passed the 1/3 mark of the PCT. Much logistical work to do here in anticipation of the remaining 2/3.

In honor of Gay Pride, we include this quicky photo of scruffy us trying a joint Joan Crawford head pose (though it's just possible Dionysus is going for a Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. visual quote).
