Breakfast at Nelda’s Diner. Tinkle had found a trail angel (Mariann) to pick us up right at the diner at 8.30am to go back to the trail head at Walker Pass.
Took two Gatorades from the trail magic at the trail head. Started walking 9.30am.
Lots of climbing. Really hot day. There was talk about a heatwave with temperatures in the high 30s Celsius.
At 5pm, when getting water, everyone was tired from the heat, so we went an early end of the day.
When pitching my tent, I realized that one of the guy lines nearly had ripped, it must have been scratching at a rock when I had pitched it last time. Kind of disappointing. The guy line is long enough to continue using it… But I wished they would have used a bit robust material for the guy lines.
