Start: Cottonwood Creek
End: tentsite at 558
Miles covered: 24
PCT mile marker: 558/2652
Highlight: A well-timed bit of trail magic at the end of a hot climb. There was even a cutting board with cantaloupe. Yum!
Biggest challenge: Ants. Big, red, biting ants. I have to be more careful where I take my breaks.
Was Dr. Seuss here?

Looks more like “The Martians are Coming” than Dr. Seuss. Watch out for the fire ants they can be really nasty. When I did my desert survival school my battle buddy was digging in for the night and dug into the side of a well hidden nest. He was in agony for a while from all of the bites. Be Careful and be safe out there! Hardcharger
Oh God, red ants are awful – be careful. You’re incredible, I must say.And thank you for the card. Leslie comes Monday and will get hers. Hugs, Joan
