The howling wind died overnight and we were set for another day of waterless miles, but this time with a fair few climbs. Having loaded up 4 litres of water we headed out and immediately it was apparent how hot it was going to get. It was dry, windless and exposed, but the plan to reach Tehachapi was a comfort. At the summit of a 4 mile and 1500 ft climb was a surprise water cache! Thank trail angels again for coming through right as we need them. From here it was largely downhill passing through pines and shrub land, eventually re-entering the large wind farm and onto the road to Tehachapi. Immediately we got a hitch and were dropped off at the Red House BBQ. Brilliant food and nice spot in the back for camping, highly recommend.
