Today started with a long hike into the Laguna Mountains. These are short hilly mountains but the range seems to be about 20 miles wide with successively higher peaks finally breaking into a pine forest.
I filled all my containers with water at Pioneer Mail Stop picnic area. And headed into a 24 mile waterless stretch.
I stopped hiking after something over 30 miles for the day and had the “Hilton Penthouse” of camp-spots.
The night was great. Lovely cool weather for sleeping. No preparation for the heat of TD3.
