Man, oh man. The first five or so miles were easy easy, and then. Then. Then came the bouldering and rock scrambling. At least a half mile of rocks and boulders. It was quite a challenge! It was uplifting to get through it without poles, but I am so eagerly awaiting having them!
For some reason, the blisters have formed on the bottom of my feet between my big toe and second toe. They are irritating, but not debilitating. Sooner or later, they will turn into calluses.
When I have more charge on the phone, I will detail what a typical day starts as. For now, I’ll just say that flat rock surfaces are great for catching quick naps on!
I hike on.
