Well today didn’t really go as planned.  Plan was to hike 19 miles and I did about 7.  Pagosa Springs is spread out over about 8 miles which is kind of crazy for how small it is here.  Cool town though I like it.

I walked mostly on sidewalks and bike paths  with a couple sections of grass on the side of a shoulder-less road.  I was feeling weak, nauseous and a little dizzy too.  How fun!

I got to the far end of town, went in a grocery store, and thought: I probably shouldn’t keep going.  Sadly the cheapest hotel had closed down so I chose the cheapest open hotel and got a room.

Several trips to the bathroom and I still wasn’t feeling well.  This has got to go away soon, I thought....
