Memories from October 30, 2018.
Today was a zero in Bryce Canyon City. I got my Grand Canyon permit updated, patched a hole in the tent, and scheduled a ride out to Rainbow Point for tomorrow which should be past the fire closure of the Under the Rim Trail. I still feel so clean from yesterday so I didn’t even shower.
Loneliness doesn’t really get me on the trail, even when hiking and camping by myself. In town with all the people around, loneliness manifests in me thinking that I don’t want to do more through hiking because it’s meaningless. To kill time I put on a podcast called The Trail Show which had been recommended by the last hiker I’d seen. Much laughter ensued it, the feeling of purposelessness departed.
