Day 13: Sick Day
Mission Creek mile 226.2 to mile 235.5
I was still nauseous this morning and had some cramping through the night. After 10 miles there is an 18 mile stretch where you can not camp because of a fire two years ago. Since there is no way I could do 28 miles in this heat I made it a half day so I could recover.
Forced myself to eat breakfast. Walked slowly, took breaks. Following stream up canyon for ten miles so water constantly. By 1:30 I set up camp, napped, ate and drank as much water as I could. Feeling better now. Ate two dinners. Small level area and 20 hikers backed up here. Tents are jammed close to fit everyone. Lots of interesting folks. I also spent time on my feet, draining blisters and other such fun things.
