Long day of ups and ups and ups. Started hiking into the Sierra Mountain Range proper today, and it was like nothing I've ever experienced.
Weather had a hard time making up its mind, ranging from warm and sunny to cold and breezy.
Pretty amazing views all day. Not spectacular vistas, but just being surrounded by huge mountains and chunks of rocks and wild trees... it was truly breathtaking at times.
Last full day of hiking on the PCT for the foreseeable future. It's so difficult for me to leave that it physically hurts. I know it's the right thing to do, to be there for the wife and just try my best to be present for our child, but I can't help feel that the logical parts of my brain aren't reliably remembering how unstable I am in the real world.
