May 5, 2022. Miles 407 (pinyon ) to Mile 418 (Mill Creek fire station. True Hiker Trash!

After a nice rest at a great camp, we off!

Some great views as we stayed above the mist and clouds. “Just Mile” did a great job of planning this trip with realistic mile goals and water at our camps.

2 pretty solid climbs today with a little more down than up. Nice marked and level trail.

After about 13 miles we approached the Mill Creek Fire Station. We could actually have pizza delivered there if we want, but we decided to just each the food we brought. A nice trail angel at the station provided some fruit and Gatorade!

After the fire station closed for the day, we got to cowboy camp outside the station. We were wind protected and didn’t have to put up tents. Since we had an early start planned (6 am) for a 17 mile day, it was nice.

My night spot! tasty hot chocolate and no wind.

It was a very nice day and we got in pretty early. A lot of thru hikers rested at the station then moved on well before dark.

“Hiker Trash” is a friendly way to describe hikers like us when we take over a place like Mill Creek..
