1st May Monday
25miles today. 40km
Woke up early and did about 30 minutes of study while laying in my sleeping bag, Thai language is a bit harder than I thought, but I’ll keep going.
Camp site last night
Ken started to head the way we came last night and when I tried to tell him otherwise, he was most confident that I was wrong. A coffee at McDonald’s was on the line to say who was right or wrong .
Leaving behind Mt Burro we passed through pine forests that was pleasant enough and stark difference to the desert grounds we covered the previous days. We crossed over many hills and most were in the shade and the going was generally easy.
By the way, I’m looking forward to that coffee once we get into Silver City that Ken now owes me.
Just before lunch we came across a little landmine, well I should really say it was a monster of a landmine. It was what bears should have done in the woods but this one was right in the middle of the path. Very colourful due to the berries and thankfully vegetarian
Easy walking along the trail
Turned out to be a long day, we found clean water and for the next hour we walked down Rock Canyon on gravel which was really slow and tiring. Some cattle and a bull followed us and hung about where we camped for the night just to keep us company.
Water collection point along the way
Camping among the cattle
A poster on a tree where we camped for the night. Must have a lot of history here
Tomorrow is town day so I’m looking forward for some decent food.
