July 20 (Day 80)

1265.1 to Myrtle Flat (1265.1 to 1291.2)

Daily miles: 26.1

Down to Belden and meet The Brataans, who are famous trail angels.  Let a few hikers stay overnight, but not me because I have the big hill to climb.  Go up and up and get real hot.  Enter Lassen National Forest and stay at a nice flat spot called Myrtle Flat.  Great names for places, no?  2,000 feet up today, and a good deal more tomorrow.  The climb out of Belden is no joke.
