I woke up in my little mountain nook just before 5 am to a bright shining full moon, bright as day.
I even had the energy to make a morning video and instant coffee review before heading off.
We walked about 20 miles along the side of a mountain and it changed gradually from arid desert to lush forest.
I took a nice siesta to escape the afternoon heat, my first of the trip.
Birds sang to me and kindly let me take their pictures.
By early evening we reached the 100 mile mark.
I thought often of my childhood heroes Sam Gribley and Uncle Traveling Matt, thanks for paving the way my friends.
