Had a fun day today, did about 17 miles through barrel cactus filled slopes, hiked mostly alone but bumped into katdog and other nice folks. The reward for pushing further today is the hope of making it to warner springs tomorrow where a fundraiser is washing hikers and their clothing. As long as we make it there before 4pm… we can buy burgers as well which sets us up well for pancakes and resupplies in the morning. Current hope is to be on trail at 5 tomorrow morning, packing is getting easier as we are all running low on food thankfully. I did manage to give away some food weight to other hikers… suckers! 🙂
The picture above is where I am writing this now, high up on a mountain. Now… sleep and hopefully burgers tomorrow!
