after a wonderfully quiet night, I resumed hiking toward Lake Morena. I should mention that there is no water from the border to the lake, a distance of 20 miles.
At mile 15, Hauser Canyon is a seasonal stream, (dry now) someone had left three Gallon water jugs. I had three ltr left, but it was a nice thing for someone who was out. Climbing out of the canyon I passed a nice fellow with a bulging green pack. He said he was Mr. Clean and was taking more water down to the cache.
Mr Clean lives nearby and is a past PCT hiker. He does this on his own and has to battle the rangers who remove the water jugs. He just brings more. I slipped him $10 and shook his hand.
I stopped briefly at the market/deli at Lake Morena and motered on.
