Lazy morning, packed up and out of camp around 0740.
Mostly downhill today evelation-wise, with a few steep ups scattered throughout. Beautiful desert scenery, good views, plenty of water.
Getting closer to the Mojave Desert. Can totally feel how dry the air is getting, and the ground is starting to change into a weird dirt/sand combination. Pretty intense to watch and feel the environment change.
Getting much warmer out as well. I'm definitely lookin forward to being further north into the Sierra.
Walked well today. Even with my late start I managed a thirty mile day. Still have the SOBO mentality in my mind of losing over a minute of daylight each day, and having to be up before sunrise and hike well after sunset.
I will say though, going SOBO is still my preferred experience. Not only are there way less people on trail, you end up seeing way more sunrises and sunsets.
