April 27. mile 149 to the Paradise Café (WR-151). Cache at mile 74 with gigantic grapefruits! Hiked along telephone wires from cache to the Paradise cafe, rather than road walking, with EP and WD. Lots of lovely tiny wildflowers. Had breakfast (Genovese omelette with toast and home fries) with EnviroPyro, Holly, Mark, Rhino and Twice. Hitch to Idyllwild. Had emotional breakdown for personal reasons. Dot’s back is bad so we are taking a few days off the trail. Staying at Manzanita Inn. Hustling to do laundry, showering and adjusting to town life once again.
