Holy crap the desert is hot. I knew a hot desert day would come, but damn. Woke up from the picnic spot I stayed at with a few folks around 5:30 and hit the trail shortly after that. I wanted to have a more solo day so I took off before the majority of the group had split. I ended up meeting up with the picnic group for a siesta from 1-5 at a fresh water pipe randomly coming from the side of a hill. We were able to soak our feet in the water and lay under an oak tree. Thank the lawd for oak trees in the desert.
My feet needed the rest. Ended up leaving the crew a little bit early and found a beautiful spot to camp. An overlook with an epic sunset view. Stoked to see what it’ll look like in the morning. Tomorrow is a town day in Julian. Pretty excited about it because it’ll be 91 tomorrow and ain’t nobody got time for that.
