Man was it warm today. I headed out on the trail around noon, and it was already searing hot. With eight liters of water in my backpack, the climb uphill was almost unbearable. After a mile I poured out two liters and crossed my fingers that the water cache 13 miles ahead was stocked. About three hours later and a meager three miles further I decided to find some shade and waited for the heat to subside.
I start noticing that I’m much more productive in the afternoon and early evening and utterly useless during midday. I’ve set my alarm clock for 6 am tomorrow morning and hope to hit the trail an hour later. I’m thinking that early morning might also be easier for me to find a nice pace. Taking a nap in hopefully some shade during midday and picking it back up in the afternoon.
No snakes again today buy I did almost step on this little dude
