Hitched Into Julian, California
Today ~ 21.5 Kilometres
Cumulative ~ 123.9 Kilometres
I don’t have much of a post today. My feet hurt so much I’m nothing but miserable. I just put my head down and put one foot in front of the other so I could get to Julian and soak them in the tub.
I was devastated to hear about the fire in Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris and googled it when I took a break. I have no words for seeing the spire gone. I’d been in there a few times and it was magnificent!
I hiked and hiked and then hitched a ride into Julian and I’m at the Julian Lodge. Julian is a cute, touristy little town. They have mercantile stores which I love and a lot of food places. I saw a lot of neat little things to get for my girlfriends and their dogs, but resisted the urge. No shopping for me!! 🤷♀️
I bought Doritos, Diet Coke, Insoles and Epsom Salts. I resupplied for the next 2-3 days and the hike into Warner Springs ~ my meals consist of oatmeal, tuna, peanut butter, wraps, nuts and figs.
I had creamy tomato soup and French Fries at a little cafe here 🥰 I love tomato soup, my all time favourite. I dipped my French Fries in it.
They had wine, only Chardonnay though and no Sauvignon Blanc. I passed on having wine 😳🤷♀️ There’s something seriously wrong with me.
I’ve showered, tended to my feet and I’m in bed now. I have bruises on my arms, shoulders, hips and legs. My hands, top of one ear and side of my neck have a little bit of sunburn. I have hairy legs. Who knew hiking was such a dangerous activity! I’m apprehensive now because there’s poison oak in the next section. I’m prepared with the cream and have googled again to see what the hell it looks like!
Night! Tomorrow is another day and hopefully a day with good feet!
