For my birthday Ann gave me a backpack trip! Dropping me off at Sonora pass, I hike 23 blissful miles on the Pacific Crest Trail to Wolf creek. Meanwhile she drives way around to the Highlands lake trailhead, and packs in 4 miles to camp with me. After a birthday breakfast (with cake!), she loops around again to Ebbet’s pass and picks me from another 9-mile segment. I couldn’t hope for a more sweet and beautiful gift.
