On Sunday I met up with cousin Aric Aterbery with his parents PJ and Craig for Aric's send off on through-hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, 2650 miles, to the Canadian border. The pic shows Aric's start at the Mexican border.
The official send-off comittee L to R:
Me, Craig[holding Zee], Aric, PJ.
Headed up the beginning of the PCT.
Aric and PJ.
This is one of the three "surprises" we saw in just a half hour but Aric says he didn't see anymore for the rest of the day.
