Foot Pain Yay. Not.

Feet were feeling better today but still had some heal pain towards the end of the day. Had the best lunch, laundry and bath break ever though. Had the entire valley South of Tuolumne Meadows to myself with a beautiful snaking stream and a beautiful view of the area North of Donohue Pass. Did laundry, jumped in the stream and bathed and hung out and meditated naked while my clothes dried …. while eating hot tamales and lunch! So much fun and so beautiful!

Tuolumne Meadows Equals Meh

Biggest disappointment of the day was arriving in Tuolumne Meadows as I expected to see other thru hikers, but I saw none. Lots of tourists in their white tents and cars everywhere …. Was kind of a bummer. Had the opportunity to get a meal there or some snacks but the desk people had a shitty attitude when I asked about the camping options, so noped the fuck out of there. Was a disappointing experience overall. Tried to get in as many miles as possible but had to stealth camp a couple miles past the Tuolumne Meadows cafe ….
