Day 2, May 5, Lake Morena to Long Canyon Creek, 17.7 miles (28.5km)
I left Lake Morena Campground around 5.30. Walking in the morning is a good thing to do around here. I did my first 10 by 10 which means you have walked 10 miles by 10am.
And I was rewarded for that almost immediatelly. At around mile 10.5 I had to cross a Highway and there I stumbled in to my first trail magic. Lory and Dave, a couple from San Diego, had put up a big partytent with chairs, cooler full of coke and beers, fruits, water and doritos. It was so nice to get a break from the sun. The cold drinks really hit the spot! I stayed there for about an hour and a half before dragging myself back into the hot desert.
Tomorrow I get into Mount Laguna and see what I’ll do once I get there. I might spend the day there to get fueled up on food since I haven’t been eaten that much these first 2 days. The heat makes me have no appetite at all. But I sure do need some energy! Let you know!
