Mile 127.33 to 145.6; elevation gain approximately 2K. Left at 7:30 am as had some rain and heavy winds overnight and wanted tent to dry. We paid the price when we had a lot of elevation to gain in the beating sun. Our “solarbrellas”helped a lot. Mary’s Place was a great oasis on her property where we could sit at picnic tables under cover and drink cold water and lemonade. It even had an outhouse and outdoor shower. Kathy took advantage of the shower. It was a hard day due to the heat.
