Lake Morena.  Mile 20ish.  Here with about a dozen others, just 2 I know, Johnny Rocket and Butter.  Legs ok, feet sore.  More moleskin tomorrow.  Had a terrific day, with a nice 2 hour siesta, food and chat with a few others including  a guy from Holland.

Saw: LIZARDS, horned toad, some cool blue starling type birds, tons of rabbits, and  so.e weird black lizards.  Campground is full of crows.

Canyons in the desert.

Hauser Creek at mile 15.6.

Met Gloworm and Hiccups today, and a few others struggling along, one girl unable to keep anything down.  Yikes.

Got a decent shower for 50 cents here and did laundry in the sink.  Classy!

Protein powder, turmeric, stretching  then sleep.  Beat.  

21.5 uphill tomorrow??
