Burney Falls State Park

Shortly after I left camp this morning, I reached Burney Falls State Park. I almost kept going, but figured that I might as well go see what the big deal is.

Okay, these 129' waterfalls were pretty awesome. I also really wanted to go swimming, but it was 6am, and I'm also not entirely sure that it's allowed. So, instead, I kept going.

I wound up meeting, and hiking with, this guy Crash. He's really fast, but also a great guy to chat with, so I pushed myself. Strangely, while it was faster than my natural pace, I was able to keep up without overexerting myself.

I wanted to do another few miles, but all of this hill climbing took it out of me, so I called it good enough (rather than do night hiking). Tomorrow's gonna be terrible tough -- lots of hills.
