Day 1: 1 versus 1

It’s not the heat. it’s the hum-… No, it’s actually the heat. It’s so hot, my spam actually melted. Melted! I kid you not.

I decided to split Lake Morena into two days. I have the time, and I jneed some acclimation. The heat, after the recent resurgence of winter back home. The elevation. The GODAWFUL weight of my pack. And the fact that I’ve been running on three houra’ sleep the last couple of nights.

I’d like to be poetic, but I’m beat beyond belief. Just thought I’d drop a quick note to say that I’m here! In a tent!
