Day 9: A Siesta and a Night Hike

April 19th
Today’s mileage: 19
CDT mile 122

We found the foundation of a house on a small mountain. I recognized it from one of Joe Brewer’s trail videos.

I waited at the foundation while Six-2 went to explore a communication tower nearby. While sitting here, I discovered an unopened 12-pack of Dasani water stashed beneath these rocks.

This water source was kinda eerie, as it was super cold and dark and it seemed to descend for forever. We cooked dinner here and then hiked into the night, trying to lose elevation and then walking alongside a dry riverbed for several miles. We were off-course, I think because we’d gone to this water source, so it was comforting to reach a road before we made camp in the dark.
