Once down we decided to continue on another six miles, supposedly all flat, in order to get to Ziggy and The Bears place in Whitewater. I was already hurting due to the long downhill day but I valantly started out, into the hot, late afternoon sun. The first mile was asphalt and steep. Finally we got to trail tread and within a mile the sand started. If I was to tell you I was hating life right then would that convey my feelings about those last four miles? I was swearing like a sailor. Or maybe worse than a sailor if there is such a thing. We did get here but I was seriously dragging my ass the last few miles. I was very cranky. Where is the milestone part? Well it was my first 20 mile day. One which I don't wish to repeat anytime soon.
I wasn't able to take many photos today as my solar charged battery is on the fritz and I didn't have much juice. I'm not sure what to do as I use the phone for all electronic stuff. Photos, blogging and of course, as a phone. I guess I'll try tomorrow to order a new one and have it sent ahead.
Oh yes, the final milestone of the day?
