July 15, Day 85 – Reminiscing the desert

We got about 4 hours of sleep and had 27 miles to town. Today was going to be a little rough. I moved slowly in the morning but ate a lot of food and drank a lot of water and started to get some energy. I also had cell service throughout the day and made some long phone calls to friends and family to pass the time. I think I went though almost 2 charges on my phone today. It was pretty hot in the afternoon but we were mostly under tree cover. We walked along a canyon wall for several miles in the morning. It kind of reminded me of the hill country of Texas. We made it to the road to Burney by 6 and got a hitch not long after. We ordered Chinese food, stocked up on kombucha and fruit and relaxed in our hotel room for the night.
