Miles Today: 15.6

Mile Marker: 649.7

Apparently I forgot to refill my water while I was in town last night.  I had a little less than a half of a liter when I got packed up this morning.  Water was either three tenths behind me or six miles ahead of me.  I left my backpack and headed back toward the stream.  It was completely dry when I got there. Six miles ahead it is then.  I was quite thirsty by the time I got there, but it was a nice water source.  I actually passed a stream a mile before, but it was on private property with cattle.  I was thirsty enough to trespass, but the cattle being near the water deterred me.  No reason to take the chance of getting sick… or I guess shot for that matter.

The rest of the day was rather nice.  There was one climb early in the day, but the rest of it was spent going down a ridgeline.  There were some rocky areas that hurt my feet, but otherwise not too bad.  Toward the end of the day I ran into Liam who had somehow passed me during the day.  He said George’s foot was hurting and he was further behind.  I got to my mileage goal for the day and set up camp.  About thirty minutes later George showed up and I offered him some Cheezits if he wanted to take a break. We sat and talked for a while and then he headed back down the trail.
