We were in the motel office at 6am for breakfast such as it was...lacking.
The clerk called Mary who came at 6:30 and drove us out to the trailhead.
Mary is an old gal who was really interested in us and our trip. Thank you
Mary for the ride and conversation.
Hiking was pretty dull actually until Burney Falls Park. After that it was
more forest walk but it was uphill.
At Little Britton dam we were going to get water out of the lake but the

We spent some time at Rock Creek under the bridge eating lunch and cooling
our feet. The water doesn't taste or smell great.
