Got up early this morning and hiked down to the desert floor about a 5000 foot drop. As I hiked down I enjoyed the beauty of the flowering desert and the vistas of the desert.
I also passed 200 mile mark. I then hiked across the desert floor to interstate 10. From there I hitched a ride to Cabazon to charge my electronic equipment and grabbed a bite to eat. About 4:30 PM I hitched a ride back to the trail and started hiking out desert heat. I hiked to about 10 PM that evening. It was slow going in the rough terrain but I enjoy the cool of the evening and the beauty of the stars. I stopped at Whitewater preserve, an oasis in the desert and camped for the night. Big day of about 26 miles.
