My feet didn’t hurt!! 🥰
I ordered a lighter pack last night and REI will deliver it to me in Warner Springs in a couple days. Excited!! It’s already been shipped.
My phone rang a little bit before 6 am this morning and scared the bejesus out of me. Mom said oh sorry I was trying to call your Father.
I hitched out of Julian and back to the trail. I was picked up by a man that has done the trail a couple of times with his wife. He gave me a lot of advice. He also told me I’m in mountain lion territory now. I didn’t need to know that lol.
It’s been windy and cold and drizzly all day. Head down, one foot in front of the other. A lot of up and down and switchbacks still.
Tonight I’m camping by other people which is nice because I have mountain lions on my mind.
Today is the Alberta Election. I couldn’t vote remotely. The UCP has won a majority government! Very happy with those results for my home province.
