Monday: (04/13) Lou was up early to listen to the birds at the motel. We enjoyed breakfast at the motel. Really nice mini Belgian waffles. I was off to the trail at 0820 and Lou and Dawn hit the road to Bakersfield to Aunt Helen's. I made 14 miles stopping for the night at MM356 next to road 3N31. Nice breeze all day but now, this evening the gusts are very strong. I hope the tent stays put. Today I met Rebo, another Nobo hiker. Of course, I never saw him again with all my rest stops. I also saw a cute two foot green snake with a yellow stripe.
I'm ready to hit the trail from the motel at Cajon Pass. On the right is a train race down the grade.
Lots of flowers and lizards along the trail. The lizard on the right had quite a tail.
A nice water cache a few miles u trail from Cajon Pass by a dirt road.
