Even on top of on of the ridges no extra layers were necessary to start the day. The majority of the day was spent on old roads that I would not have dared take a car on but I ended up seeing all kinds of old automobiles navigate the rough tred and potholes. One especially old looking truck stopped and gave me some apples. It’s always nice to supplement my food with fruit. Although it is 20 plus miles between water sources I was able to carry and drink plenty throughout the day thanks to the cooler temperatures. I can’t imagine this section in the heat of summer. As the light faded it was apparent the forecasted rain would come in and indeed it did.
