After a good night’s sleep under a Joshua tree, the team start out with a 1500ft climb in the heat. With reports of rain on the way, they hurry towards Walker Pass, and are rewarded with their first glimpses of the Sierras ahead…wow! With Ethan keeping an eager eye out for bears, they descend towards their camp spot, deciding to hitch into Ridgecrest tomorrow to celebrate Prof’s birthday and enjoy Walmart followed by a bottomless Chinese buffet. Enjoy the chaos of dinnertime with the crew, as they discuss the random trail thoughts that occur whilst hiking all day, the relative merits of different hot sauces, and the depiction of trail food as art. Episode 48 of Trail & Errors 🙂
