Day 4, 17 miles (felt like 20)
Back on the trail at 8:15am. Hiked for 8 miles to the next water source. A spigot, a pipe coming out of the dry earth. Water must be treated, so we use our Sawyer filter. We chat with other hikers who tell us that the Warner Springs store, my next place to buy food resupplies, is closed indefinitely. Information travels on the trail grapevine. Paul calls the Warner Springs post office to confirm this news. We hiked another 9 miles and hitched into the town of Julian.
My hips are sore and aching.
I have sun burned legs.
Good news, no blisters!
The 1st car to drive by gave us a ride. He was excited to meet us and was kind to drive us 12 miles out of his way. He told us his Starbucks name is Elliot.
