Ridgecamp (1297.6) to Roadcamp (1330.3)
I wanted to make some miles today so an early start was prudent. I enjoy watching the sunrise. The morning hiking was mainly on ridge tops with commanding views of my last full day in Colorado.
I keep having this random reoccurring heal pain. I believe it’s called Plantar fasciitis. It’s common among long distance hikers and force many hikers to abandon the trail. At the moment it’s random and the pain is mild. I’ll keep hiking and hoping that it doesn’t get worse. Although a search on Google has me thinking it will not go away anytime soon.
I was hiking alone all day until I met Paul and Chauntel. They were in low spirits. I hadn’t seen them in about 500 miles. We only chatted briefly. I hike faster than them and bigger miles each day so I continued on alone. I didn’t see any other hikers fir the rest of the day.
Camp was 7.9 miles from Wyoming. Another big day, I’m really getting quite tired. I hope my feet feel OK in the morning. I must say that Colorado has been the toughest hiking I’ve ever done.
