Hello dear friends!
I've regained reception and am excited to share these past few days with you.
We begin at around 9,000 feet above sea level, upon the ridge of Mt. San Jacinto.
It was a beautiful and contemplative place to start the week. I jammed out to William Elliott Whitmore's new song "Healing to Do," dancing between visions of forest and desert floor, and soothing the ache I was feeling in my heart.
My vitality refreshed, I began the 7,000 foot descent back to the desert floor.
It got hotter and hotter the lower we climbed.
I reached the 200 mile mark!
And saw lots of lizards scurrying about in the heat of the afternoon.
I hiked into the night and camped within a mile of the desert floor. I was exhausted from the intense terrain and grateful to lay down after a long day on my feet.
after sleeping peacefully for an hour or two, something awakened me by crashing into my tent and collapsing it upon me.
Can you guess what it may have been?
