Journal Entry

Last night I was at Scissors Crossing, so named because two higways form a scissor shape. It is 13 miles from Julian. Nearest water after this stop was 13.9 miles uphill. It was a long dry climb. Ferocius winds a good part of the day. Some so strong I wondered that with the top heavy load of my pack I might get blown off the ridge. Good thing about winds are they keep temps down. I did put my tent up tonight. I tried to pitch it low so it would stay up. Several folks at camp just slept under the stars. This was the first tine I dared to cook in the wind. I worry about fires. I built a rock barrier plus my wind screen. All went well, I dined on pasta genoveese in my warm little tent, tended to my feet which are by now sporting blisters in 6 places. Trekking on, Ginny
