May 22, Tuesday, 2021. Zero day, rest and play

Taking a break at the Morongo resort in Cabazon. Lovely place with nice clean rooms, crazy fancy pool area and hot tub, and good food (although the great steak place on the top of the tower is closed tonight).

Floating in the moving pool was much nicer than hiking. Lol.

And the water slide was very nice!

And the hot tub

The plan is to start early tomorrow but having some problems getting to the trailhead so far. The trailhead is about 5 miles away in the middle of nowhere, and the off ramp is closed at the moment. Hopefully Uber will be up early.

The plan is to hike to Big Bear Lake by Sunday, and then take a break from the trail and return home for a few weeks. The next 3 days has a bunch of elevation climb, around 6k elevation. Easy water access on day 2 which will be a refreshing change. Now I get to throw away the Walmart clothes I bought for this reprise, but at least all my hiking clothes are clean.
