Day one April 15. 12-13 miles. began at noon. My friend Mike dropped us off at the border- thanks Mike!!! Creature count: three snakes one horny toad one bunny no rattlers found lone sandy campsite. almost full moon overhead heard owl. hope I did the Ursack right. quiet windless night lush conditions tons of good water and purple yellow and white flowers. one blister on back right heel started cuz the heel slips but blister didnt form. Annie and I are hiking well. pitched camp as darkness fell happy to be horizontal. not too cold yet but we are descending to howser Creek, lower elevation.
