Slow and steady

Today was more of the same: lots of hills, and lots of descents. I also took lots of breaks, so that helped -- about a fifteen-minute break every two hours or so. I'm hoping this will let my foot heal faster. During one of these breaks, I even soaked my foot in ice cold water, since I don't have an ice pack.

Check out that tan line!

I don't think it actually helped, but it felt good to try anyway, haha.

I wound up calling it quits a few miles early today. Not only do I not want to push myself too hard, but I found a great campsite and just didn't really feel like hiking. I'll make up the miles tomorrow.

Or next week.

Those are dirt-lines now, not tan lines...

Oh and I saw a truly amazing sunrise over the Colombia River Gorge this morning:

Jaw-dropping
