265 miles sure feels like a lot of walking. If I was planning for a hike that long as a separate, complete trip, I would be feeling a hell of a lot of accomplishment right now. But with a PCT thru-hike, this is really just the first milestone of a much, much larger undertaking.

It's worth celebrating, but it's also a sobering reminder of just how much more there is to do.

More later; I'll be in town at least another 24 hours. I need to make room arrangements for tonight, and visit a doctor about some persistent numbness in my right foot. I really hope it's nothing serious.
