Today’s goal ended up revolving around getting from one trail angel’s home to another’s so that we could end our day with the famous taco salad at Case de Luna. This would mean a 24-mile day over a segment known for being hot and dry. We’d need to leave super early.
Michael didn’t want to leave the puppy behind.

We were up early this morning so that we could get into (and out of) Hiker Heaven (home of trail angels the Saufleys) at a good time.
I love early mornings!
