5/6/18 Spent the night at motel in Ridgecrest. No morning sunrise to wake me up because I left the drapes closed to the east. I won’t do that again. Got my self cleaned up and organized and member of my Church picked me up took me to the 9:00 AM services. It was good to worship the Lord today and to strengthen each other.
An other member to me back to Walkers Pass about a 20 minute drive west of Ridgecrest. Trail magic was still going on with two different trail angel families. Hikers came and went and hung around all afternoon. I ate relaxed all afternoon with my friends I have met on the trail.
At 5:30 pm 5 of my friends whom I hiked with earlier in week headed north up the trail. We climbed up 1500 feet in 5 miles into the sunset. We set up camp on saddle looking to the east and west.
