Day 83: Holy rough trail batman!
Start: 956.2 bush camp
End: 971.64 awful bush camp
How the hell did I make 15 miles today? Today was one of the hardest crawls yet. This part of Yosemite is all up, down, and rocks. Not to mention I didn’t drag myself out of camp until 11:30… Which is really NOT acceptable. Then I spent all my reserve battery on a stupid video game. Charged my phone with what was left… 77% to last me a week. Note to self, turn off phone at night.
From yesterday’s post… I might be agreeing that this is the hardest part of the trail. Hoof!
I ran in to a couple deer today. Startled the first one when it was ten feet away… Startled me too! It took two running steps, then stopped, looked at me, and said “oh really, it is just youuu… Stupid.” The second deer clearly didn’t recognize me when it spotted me from 50 yards away. I walked down to where it was and even though it had spotted me previously it startled, ran across my path, stopped, stared at me and did a scan with those radar ears, and then said “I was startled by youuu? Pathetic.”
I’m just reporting what they said to my face. Deer are uppity assholes.
Some large sounding insect is beating its huge wings outside my tent… A little disconcerting. I think it must be stuck in the folds of my rain fly. Not inside anyway, so I guess I can ignore it.
My shoulders hurt… Must be carrying too much weight on them.
Pretty shitty camp spot tonight. Ran outta light and made do with what I found.

One of the tougher parts of the trail so far

        What did you think? I imagine it’s probably not as good away from civilization
