Last night was my first real night alone in the woods. It was quiet… too quiet! I slept OK, it was still quite warm at night, too warm under the quilt and too cold without. I was feeling a bit better and my appetite was returning.
Once at the top of the hill, I had a nice walk down into a meadow. I still wasn’t feeling 100% with regards to energy levels, the appetite had gone again. My legs and feet felt OK, with only one blister. Yet I was pretty wiped out again after only 4 miles.
I decided to camp at Sunrise High Sierra camp, which is a campground and tent cabin site. The tent cabins are very popular and a lottery takes place for people to stay here. The campground is set on a hill side with tent pitches well set out and plenty of space. There is running water and a vault toilet.
Being on the hillside, the higher you went the better the views across the meadow. After a few hours relaxing I forced down some food. The more I drank the better I felt.
