Man, the last few days have been rough. Being a bum is not easy. My brain and body just feels dead. Most of today was spent sitting around Max's house. We watched three movies and random things on tv and I napped in between. I was literally laying on the couch for hours. I don't know how people are couch potatoes on the weekend--those who like to veg out and binge on tv all day.
The only time we left the house was to get lunch at a Mexican place. We walked in and there was nothing but Hispanics. Good sign. Except the boys were like the only white people there. I ordered a taco salad and it was soooo yummy. Every Mexican place we've been to in California has been really good and I don't usually ever do Mexican! We headed back to the house and I was excited for my nap. We finally started packing our things and Max took us to Walker pass at around 6ish. It was weird to be headed back but we were also excited. When you've been off trail for a few days, it seriously feels like you don't know what it's like to hike again. Such a weird feeling.
We said bye to Max and thanked him for letting us bum around his house all day. There were a few forest service rangers there dropping off some other hikers. It was warm but not too bad. We climbed the whole way but thankfully it was mainly not in the sun. I walked past sunset and finally found a spot around 9p just as it was getting a little too dark for me. I only made it about four miles from the pass but I was getting so sleepy. And I don't like searching for a camp spot in the dark. There are a few other people here but it's ok. There's not very many options up on this ridge. I wished I could set up my tent but it'd be a waste of energy bc I plan on waking up early. There doesn't seem to be many bugs around here, I think.
