Fast trails!

written Jul 10, 2017 @ 04:01 AM after hiking 31.97 miles

The trails out here -- after the desert, after the High Sierras -- are fast. For example, today I didn't really set an agenda for myself and I stopped when I wanted to stop and took an hour for lunch and dinner, and I unintentionally did a 31.96-mile day.

Weird.

So here are some captioned pictures from today because I don't really have anything to say.

Vroooom

Is this trail magic?! But it's been, like, hundreds of miles...

It is! I think I'll pack one out for lunch tomorrow!

I bought new kicks in Tahoe -- I'm hoping these get me through Oregon

Oh yeah, one thing that won't fit in a caption: for the first time, I made a mistake. Well okay, not my first mistake, but it's the first time I made this mistake. I forgot to allocate water for dinner. So I had to have dinner next to a snow bank and boil some. Thankfully I have extra fuel, but still, it took forever and was annoying. I won't make this mistake again. Hopefully.

Ugh hurry up
