Daily mileage: 6.5
Well our wonderful stay at the Saufleys couldn't last forever. Boxes were mailed, bags were packed and time was wasted until it was a more tolerable temperature outside. Ice cream, salad, smoothies, curry potatoes. Oh kitchens are amazing but the desert was calling. Looks like its going to be tough, almost every day is over 20 miles between water sources. Those packs are going to be awfully heavy...
The tequila kid (Jack who hiked last year) gave us a ride back to the trailhead and after a bit of time on the pavement back to climbing we went.
And now the cousins, caveman and I are all asleep on the trail after watching a great sunset looking forward to the Anderson's tomorrow.
