What a pain today was, at least in the beginning. I began hiking at 6:30 am and started with hill climbing, continuing with more hill climbing. Because I didn't get far enough yesterday, and I seemed to be moving slowly up hill, it became clear to me I wouldn't make it to Idyllwild by trail today. Foolishly I hadn't packed enough food for tonight so I had to make a choice to take a side trail out and get to Idyllwild by an alternate route. What a duffus I am. I hope to be able to manage the logistics of this stuff better as I go along.
