Saw some wildlife today but didn't get pictures. First time in awhile since I've seen a red headed woodpecker. I also saw a 5-6 foot black snake. He saw me too and skadadled off the trail. There are notes left everywhere about rattlesnakes but I've yet to see one. I'm okay with that.
Part of the trail was along the Great Eastern Divide. The rocks are slanted and I was glad it was a dry day.
The picture really does not show the slant well.
Toward the end of the day I made a climb up to the Audie Murphy Menorial. I guess that is fitting since this is Memorial Day.
Today's hike was 22.4 miles. Here is Guthook's profile of this section.
Tomorrow is another big day. I'm going to Lambert's Meadow so I will only be 10 miles from Daleville on Wednesday morning. I hear a hot shower calling my name.
