Miles 1494-1506 (12 miles)
The last 12 miles getting into Castella was pretty quick. Whoo hoo! Cuz it was hot!! Lol. About 6 miles outside of castella you could hear the noise from the Interstate 5 freeway. Anyhow, we got picked up by an awesome trail angel Jan yaaaay!! Jan has been following my blog since the beginning so it was awesome to meet her. Thanks Jan!!! :D
She took us to her house in Redding which is about 45 minutes south of castella. Oh man it was soooo wonderful to be in air conditioning and have a place to organize all my crap and do laundry and shower and all the standard time-consuming town stuff. Lol!
We went to Olive Garden!! Aaaaaahhhhh unlimited breadsticks and salad aaaaahhh!!! Lol. That was cool. Haven't been to Olive Garden in a while and I've been having a weird craving for it. Ooooo I ate so much it was amazing :)
Jan is sooooo awesome! She has a little travel buddy too. It's a stuffed doll in a ranger outfit named Ranger Jan. lol it's cool! She'd be a great buddy for Squizzle! :)
Redding is the largest town I've been in this entire hike. It was...interesting. Lol. I dunno, all I gotta say is I am so glad I don't live on the mainland anymore. :). Jan's house was my oasis of awesomeness in the midst of a hugeass city.
But ooo there are trees everywhere in the surrounding areas!!! Yaaaaaay trees!!! I love trees :)
