I wanted today’s goal to be 25 miles, but my feet were sore all day. I suspect that it is a combination of too many days off and shoes at the end of their life.
I have new shoes coming into Bend, but that is 200 miles from now. My current pair was sent to me at South Lake Tahoe, so they are due for a change.
There are more hikers here than back in Lake Shasta. I have to wait in a queue to get water. These people have all pasted me in the past. Now I can keep up.
My friend Napoleon is a day in front of me. I hope to be able to catch up with her.
While I was hoping to kick it into gear, this is just like Northern California so far. I’m hiking from water source to water source.
