Day 4

How far we hike everyday is largely determined by where the water is and how much we can carry. Many camps are "dry" meaning that we camp far away from a stream or spring, dependent only how much water we have on us. Today was an example -- we found a nice enough campsite at Chariot Canyon but whatever water was there earlier this year was long gone. We started this morning at Mt. Laguna campground -- a luxury of sorts since it had plenty of water and an outhouse! Whoopee. But, our little camp in the canyon (elev. 3850) had abundant wildflowers and birdsong. We pulled up here after 15 miles since the next flat spot for camping was further than we wanted to hike today.
Trailfolks "Brit" and "Montana" showed up just before dark and shared our "campground".
