Across California: Day Three
Sunrise at 6:45. No clouds. Frost on tarp and bag. I spread my arms wide turkey vulture style soaking in the sun's warmth. The trek still feels like the right thing to be doing. Using these tiny keys does not. Breakfast is a homemade protein bar and granola washed down with plenty of water. There are six liters of water left in my Platypus bags. We tacked on an extra five miles yesterday afternoon for Highway 95, so more water used, but no noise.
