We woke up at Scout and Frodo’s house at 5, had 30 minutes to pack, 30 minutes to eat, and we were on the road. I ended up in the car with Scout, Kristie, Michela, and Eloise.

We got to the monument, signed the register, did a large group photo – Michela on my shoulders.
Ended up hiking with Kristie, she is from Wisconsin, poked my hand in to Mexico, took the cliche mile 1 shot —

Pretty tired, feel like I forgot most of what happened today. we grouped up with several hikers, Jerry is the only one whose name I can remember. Camp started with two of us, but looks like there are about ten now. Eight pm and it went from loud to everyone going to sleep.

Before we set camp, we were all laying down trying to avoid the sun.  I laid down next to Jerry, he is a card, has the gift of gab, and said cuddling is fine, but that he only does the big spoon.

You guessed it!   His trail name is Big Spoon!

That’s a day, goodnight.

    Ps… No fucking clue why this fucker rotates photos. Pretty sure it is not reading some metadata properly.
