The first 9 miles to water went pretty quick. I thought that part of the desert was beautiful. I didn't expect so many wild flowers. The hills smelled of flowers. The cacti are in bloom-they might be my new favorite flower.
The morning was thick cloud cover. I've never been so happy to have a cloudy day before. On the AT clouds usually meant rain, out here it means cool hiking weather.
The cloud cover did break up around 1 p.m. and I could just feel it start to scorch me.
