Started at 7am. That’s too late.
The first time this morning I saw sun. It took an hour. I need to make that 2 hours or more to avoid the heat.
Trying to avoid the sun.
Made it to Julian. Hitched for a while with no success, that’s Sunny on the bench, an Oklahoma boy. The professor saved me and brought me into Julian. He maintains the cache under the overpass and is a really nice and interesting fellow.
That was my sunrise on the way to scissors
Made it to Moms pie shop and got a free pie slice ,ice cream scoop, and a drink. Very nice.
Ok. I get it. Crazy vistas, great views. All good. They now look the same to me. Lol. So less scenic shots and more personal and people stuff if possible.
I should have taken a group photo. These are really nice people. Saw Goodwill (Logan) again. We met when I was resting on day one. Also ran into Ariana again (soon to be a grad student in Seattle). Also met Immaculate, Bear, and a few other interesting hikers.
Julian is an interesting town. It was hopping and super active during the day but completely shuts down by 8pm. The Gold Rush hotel that I am staying at is nice,
I may need to lose pounds off my pack, and dump the stove and fuel, as odd as that sounds. We will see.
