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....
