Forest Service Road 120 to Chester. 100 closed trail miles. I'm now at Trail Mile 1335.

A large fire has 100 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail closed between the Quincy - La Porte Road and Chester (Highway 36) closed to hikers, so there was a 26 mile hitch to Quincy, and a long bus ride to Chester (The fare was only $3, but the bus was full!)

We had a great "Birthday" celebration at a local pizza parlor, and camped just outside the City Park near a nice stream. It was a good thing that we didn't camp in the park because the automatic sprinklers came on at 4:00 a.m. and we would have been soaked. I'm still hiking with Sauerkraut, Alina, and Mainsail. Duce and Tugboat also camped at the park.
