Day 87: Maps are important… hey look! Soft serve!

Memories from July 16

America’s a crazy place. Things like this make me feel safe sleeping in bear country with my food bag for a pillow.

A progress update.

The bridge over river dry.

One mile sice the last sign. A day hiker asked how far I’d come when I told him I’d started at the Mexican border so I turned around and read the sign.

I went in to the Burney Falls Campground to get some maps Dad had mailed me. After paying $7 to pick them up, I noticed try sold soft serve and promptly left my envelope on the desk to go buy some. The mistake was realized quite a few miles down the trail. Good thing the trail is well marked.

Trail crosses a dam.

As a bystander said, “That’s not apple juice”.
