LUXURY IN MAMMOTH LAKES
PCT DAY 53: Rest Day # 5
Sunday June 5, 2016: Zero miles
I had to pinch myself when I woke up this morning. I thought I was dreaming that I was in a comfortable bed in a cozy warm room. Then I remembered last night. We were staying with Rick and Linda who very generously took us into their home. It was so warm and comfortable. Rick cooked us an amazing breakfast of buckwheat waffles with lashing of fresh blueberries. With cups of freshly brewed coffee and a fruit smoothie, we were in heaven. How will breakfast on the trail ever be the same?
After breakfast we drove into town to shop for food for our next 11 days on the trail. By the time we finished resupply shopping it was time for lunch. A sensational burger at a local restaurant followed by a chocolate milkshake put on some of the weight we lost in the Sierra mountains. We spent the afternoon doing a bit of sightseeing, repackaging food and catching up on this blog posts.
We are so happy we stopped in Mammoth Lakes. And it was nice to get a locals perspective on what it’s like to live in a mountain top town all year round. Certainly is a great place to live if you love the outdoors.
It is so nice to be a warm home with such generous hosts. Still feels like a dream. We are being totally spoilt. Trail life will hard to go back to.
