Started: Warner Valley Camp (1350.3)
Ended: Stealth Campsite (1372.3)
Total Miles: 22.0
We specifically camped at Warner Valley so our food was safe from Bears. You would think it would be safe in a big steel box from small critters, too. That was not the case.
We will see how amazing Tenatious Tape really is.
The first quarter of the hike was flat and green through pines. There were boardwalks. It reminded me of the Ice Age Trail.
So far the smoke from the Carr Fire has only been to our benefit. We had a long stretch through a burned out section. For miles there was only dead standing trees and a red orange sun through the smokey haze. It felt like hiking on a different world. The smoke kept the air cool.
That allowed us to hike close to 3.0 m.p.h. for most of the day. Because it was so flat, we hiked five miles from the highway we will take into Old Station for a two day resupply into Burney.
