Gail with Juniper berries

On the trail again

Got a late start at 12: 30 but made it past hwy 20 to camp. My friend Gail gave me a ride to the TH and hiked for a few miles. I love the gnarled old junipers. First cross country uneventful, the waypoints are right on. Heard a chickadee and saw a scrub jay. Cold and windy and intermittent rain. I look forward to warmer weather tomorrow. With this cold weather, I won't need to carry all the cached water (2 gal here at a cache just south of Hwy 20). Also saw larkspur and wallflower and a small onion like plant with white flowers. I had a weird thing happen (for me, anyway ). I totally lost my sense of direction for a few hours right after leaving the TH. I got it back by the time I reached Hwy 20.
