Yesterday I didn't blog. I planned on doing it in the evening, but time slipped away from me. Anyhow, it was a pretty good day. I walked at noon and dang, it was humid! I came back with frizzy hair and sweating like crazy! I'm one of those people who sweat... lots. Good thing I had baby wipes and a change of clothes to freshen up.
After work I quickly ate supper and took Mr Tucker for a walk. It was lightly misting when we left. We got about a mile and a half in and the skies opened up. Down pour! He quickly became one curly haired wet black dog and I became one soaked to the underwear, frizzy haired human! Not to mention I couldn't see much as my glasses were water spotted and then went to steaming! The cool rain did feel refreshing for a moment, but then it was just hot, clammy, wet clothes and the walk home in squishing shoes.
Today I had a luncheon meeting. No walk for me. I am going to have a lighter step count today. It is humid out there and was pouring a few minutes ago. Intermittent showers are expected for the next two days, some severe. Ugh! However, I am not going to punish myself and chain myself to the treadmill for an hour and a half to get in 12,000 steps! I will walk on the treadmill a few miles two or three - but not 5 or 6! It's OK to have a light day. Rain happens!
I updated my virtual walk. I am now 755.1 miles in and today is day 105 on the trail. My daily average miles for the week went up to 7.7 from 7.2! So I did work hard this week!
On day 101 I could see the Sierras in the distance. Yep, I will be headed to those snow covered mountain tops!
These beautiful snow flowers were along the trail! Talk about a pop of color!
Day 102 found myself in some flat meadows! Better be soaking this in because there is going to be much climbing ahead!
Day 103 was getting a bit rocky and hilly!
I must admit I get amazed by the rock formations along the trail.
Another view of what lies ahead...
Day 104 started with some meditation!
Oh my gosh and then there it was...snow on the trail! Just a few days ago I was wandering in the hot desert seeking shelter from the sun!
And who could resist a rest along the banks of Chicken Spring Lake?
Time to move forward. I'm really liking it here! Some beautiful photos spots!
This is my stopping point for the night.
Who would think that this girl who has a fake knee would be virtually hiking the Pacific Crest Trail? Feeling grateful! Thank you actual hikers who photo journal your hike to share with others like me! I hope some day when time allows to actually hike a section or two of the trail. I feel like it has become my old friend!
