24 Jun Day 60 – Heat
At mile 1521.1. Hiked 17.9 miles today.
With a heavy pack loaded with a 5 day resupply and a long climb in the heat, I decided to cut the day short and stop hiking at 4:30 PM. I also took several cooling off breaks to prevent the heat from causing problems. The steepest part of the climb over, I finally reached a small creek where I filled my water bottles and took a long recovery lunch.
The day was spent climbing up and around Castle Crag. Here are some photos of Castle Crag.
Gazelle walking southbound. Last saw her climbing the San Felipe Range past Scissors crossing when she told me about the Peak Finder app.
