November 14, 2017

Steps: 40,001
Vertical gain:  1,648   feet
Liquid consumed: 110 oz.
Wildlife: Rabbits, small lizards
Faith in Humanity: Tara has been a great hiking partner and doesn’t even seem too annoyed by me!

Another day in the beautiful desert.  Waking up was pretty funny.  I learned that Tara is not really a morning person, haha.  Personally, I have this gift/curse that I have energy almost all the time. We were able to get up and on the trail by 7:15am or so which isn’t so bad!

We walked a few miles and then tried to find the first water cache.... A bit nerve racking but no problem at all on the end!  Found some water, took a break and enjoyed the sun.

For the rest of the day  the trail went through a lot of really cool canyons and was really spectacular.  It was also nice and sunny all day and in the 50s: perfect weather for hiking!

The last few miles of the hike we climbed out a canyon then walked on its rim with really great views.  Ended the day there with a nice soft campsite.

 These entries are all so similar:  wake up, hike all day and enjoy the scenery, set up camp.  Woo!  I must say though I really love it.  Certainly not getting bored of the journey at all.  The scenery and path is different every day and I really love that! Meet cool people, enjoy great scenery, love life!
