Day 6 : Camp at Mile 115

Wednesday April 29, 2015
24 Miles Today
117 Total Miles

Way too tired. Twenty-five mile days back to back is exhausting. It didn't help that I hiked during the hottest part of the day. Why did I do that? Lesson learned, no more of that. 

Starting hiking before the sun came up and made great time to barrel Spring. The terrain changed dramatically from desert to the type of California I am used to. It looks a lot like the foothills of the Sierras except for the cactuses.

Past the hundred mile mark today.

Hiked past Eagle Rock.
I don't see it
Where's the eagle?
Eagle smegol
By golly, it sort of looks like an eagle.

Warner Springs Resource Center served hot food to thru hikers until just before I got there. Apparently the county health department shut them down. Ah well, I guess I'm eating hiking food for a bit longer. 

I walked an extra mile or so in to the Post Office and back out. Yay! More food.

I also included some shaving cream and a razor. My face is as smooth as a babies butt.

After that I should have hung out and taken a nap. It was too hot and I ended up hiking slow and getting exhausted.

The trail went quickly back into the desert and it was dry, dry, dry, and hot. 

The umbrella is a life saver

Surprisingly there is a tiny stream here. I was so busy cooling off and cleaning up that I didn't take any pictures. Oops. I think the heat got to me.
