5 miles hiked/ solo camp
-Saw 12 people going NOBO today
Today I was going to hike 9.5 miles uphill, but the altitude really started to kick my ass so I just went 5 miles instead.
It was so hot today. I didn’t start hiking till 11ish because we know how much I love my sleep and I slept till 8am. Then packed up and organized and left for trail at 10:30.
I ate 12 slices of ham for my lunch LOL.
It’s about 1:15pm right now and I’ve only gone like 2.8 miles.
My chest is so tight from the altitude and my headache is brutal.
I am going to rest till 1:30 and then keep pushing. Maybe if I rest every half mile I’ll be okay.
God I hate altitude.
Second lunch I ate a Nutella peanut butter wrap.
I got to camp at 3pm. It’s so hot out as it’s still early, so I set up my tent (took like 20 minutes because it’s soooo windy I had to go searching for rocks… I hope this time my tent holds)
Then I walked .2 back to shade I found before and read a bit.
I had to reinforce my tent again. This wind is getting to me…
I watched my show, posted on Instagram, saw a beautiful sunset (FINALLY) and went to sleep :)
Tomorrow will be a hard day but I’m excited for the challenge.
