The Pop Tart Rattlesnake

{endlocation=Idyllwild CA
Ever alert to the warning rattle of our friendly local snake, I was
thrown into high alert on the trail this morning, but it was only
Yellowstone shaking the crumbs out of her pop tart bag. It got the
adrenaline going, though.
Yesterday was a tough day. We did about 19 hot miles, and had to carry
extra water because it was in short supply. My feet started to bother
me again. Not blisters, but neuromas, which cause a burning sensation
on the balls of my feet. It started on a long hot downhill. I'm hoping
to work through that little problem. We decided to camp in a sandy
area just past some water, and it was a great place for the night.
Today there was quite a troop of hikers heading for HWY 74and a hitch
to Idyllwild to resupply. We were lucky-a very sweet young woman named
Luca picked us up within 10 minutes. She was on her way home to
Portland after working in Palm Springs all winter. She dropped us at
the state park campground in town, only $ 3 a night for hikers. It was
close to everything in town, so we walked to the store and to get
something to eat. I thought I was hungry, but I don't really have much
of an appetite for anything.
So Bag Lady and Tumbleweed are here too. We'll be here a couple of
days, collecting packages from the PO with snow gear for the next leg
of this adventure. We keep hearing about big snow in the mountains, so
we're not sure how to proceed
Jewel of the day-lovely wild California poppies dancing in the wind.
