PCT Miles Hiked Today: 19.8
|Sierra City, our target today, is at the base of that mountain, Sierra Buttes.|
From close to 8000 ft elevation, we descended more than 4000 ft to the deep cleft valley -- full of tall cedars and pines -- of the small erstwhile mining town (200+ population) of Sierra City.
Architecture here picks up mining and log cabin themes.
We hung out at the wonderful establishment "The Red Moose" run by Trail Angels Bill & Margaret Price. Free laundry, shower, computer/Internet use, etc. THANK YOU!!! Beer, supper, etc. wow!
Lunch was the "gut buster burger" at the local general store. Great folks helping us out in Sierra City.
