I was up before sunrise this morning to get as many miles in before it started to heat up. In addition to comfort, the next water source was 19 miles away and hiked by in the cooler temps minimizes the amount of water that needs to be carried.
Another Milestone…not sure why this person made it at 600.1 ?
It was nice to finally leave the wind turbines and scrubby bushes behind for the giant ponderosas and sugar pines.
An interesting but a area with crazy boulders and lots of flowers.
After a 30 mile day with only two water sources I set up for a little Cowboy Camping.
I have an extra early departure planned as the next water is 32 miles away. My plan is to head out around 4:30am get 20mi done before noon. Take a long siesta and do the last 12 after the sun drops a little lower (3:30?). There may be a water cache along the way some local trail angels maintain but you can’t really plan on it.
30, 32 mile days. You are crazy!!! I’ll be in California next week. NorCal for work and then LA for my nephew’s high school graduation. I’ll be thinking of you. Keep on walking!
Wave to me when you fly over the Sierras 🙂
