Day 82: Back on trail with a new phone.

Day 82: Back on trail with a new phone.

Start: 943.22 Tuolumne Meadows
End: 956.2 riverside bush camp

.
It took three extra days, but I finally made it back to Tuolumne Meadows. Yosemite charged me to enter the park which I find curious, other than the PCT which allows me to walk in for free, I’m not interested in the rest of the park this time around.
.
I picked up my packages from the general store. Holy moly I want to eat everything mom sent me! … Except the gorp. I’ll eat half a bag of it a day and save the rest as emergency rations if I run out of more appealing food. The gorp bags have my tea and emergenC which I always use, especially since I discovered I can mix the two for iffish Arnold palmers.
.
I left Tuolumne around 11:30 and really wasn’t feeling it. Then someone I haven’t met before passed me, Sprinkler, and I hiker drafted off of her for about 10 miles. 13 in all. She mentioned a book written by a woman who said Yosemite was the hardest part. This didn’t make sense at all to me (until tomorrow… Read that post).
.
I camped in the midst of a pretty large group. Of course there was an illegal fire. :p. For once the conditions felt safe, I kept my mouth shut.
.
Oh! I ran in to Huddles again. Haven’t seen her since Julian (mile 77). She was off trail for three weeks with an ankle injury and still caught up to me. Go Huddles!
