Day 52

Miles Hiked: 18.5

Total Milage: 808.5

Location: SOBO mile 1395

Today I slept in until 8am. Usually it’s hard for me to do this, so I was very happy! Once everyone was awake we l packed our bags to hit the trail. Before leaving, I picked up an iced coffee at McDonalds and my friends grabbed some tacos from Taco John next door. We walked through the down town section of Rawlins before exiting on a paved road. Eventually the road turned to dirt and we were back in the wide open desert. around 3pm I crested a small ridge and dropped down into a valley I will be walking in for the next two days. I took a break for lunch with everyone else. I ate my Greek layer dip with pretzels.

The rest of the day we continued to walk on dirt roads. The water carries were long of course but we are pretty used to them. It seems like water is more sparse in this section compared to the Basin north of Rawlins. We set up camp pretty late around 7:30. I made some tofu miso soup for dinner before falling asleep.

Happy Trails!

One thought on “Day 52

  1. With all those wide open spaces, isn’t it a little awkward when you have to go potty??? Especially, you know… #2???
