Emily's Mom here! It's been a long haul but Emily is persevering! She left Old Station (1382) last night. She's on the trail to Mt. Shasta even as we speak. It's going to be a 33 mile dry section - all open and hot - in a burned out area (no shade). It's in the nineties mid-day... Still hiking with Damien (the nicest hiker on the planet)!
I put all her photos on facebook - it's PCT group 4. Encouraging text messages and facebooks posts would be helpful at this point.
