Off trail spring (near Death Canyon?)

All Day Long - PCT - Jun 1, 2014 - Mulkey Pass
This entry covers: Sun 6-1-14
CS 0723 > CS 0744 Mulkey pass tr
21 miles.

Felt rested. Up @ 0445. Clear sky. Breakfast. Repacked bear can. Feet doing well, esp. w/ slower pace. Hiking @ 0620. Good trail energy. No feet issues. Stopped at spring off the trail (731? or 736?) for water & early lunch. Missing the PB quantity but glad I packed the small tubs. Climb went ok. Stopped at Diaz Creek for water & dinner. Nice area; lots of camping spots, but red ants where I stopped made for easy decision to hike on until 7pm & 3 miles to Mulkey Pass. Another hiker reported no ants at his spot. Reduces tomorrow's target mileage to 15. Set up tent. Pedometer battery dying; will it survive until Lone Pine?

All Day Long

Alone in the wilderness without a compass or a guide... However, by carefully noting the position of the sun, I could tell it was still daytime.

Life isn't as serious as my mind makes it out to be.
