Waxing Crescent Moon

The Cowan Cafe in Duchesne UT is another five star American institution not to be missed. In operation since 1933, Cowan’s is a classical small town diner where you get your money’s worth of tasty fresh food served with honest polite good manners. 

This is Tammy. Ain’t she cute?

It seemed like I climbed a lot today and even though it was relatively cool overall, the Sun and the pavement took their usual toll. I crossed the Strawberry River and a piece of the Starvation Reservoir. I liked the scenery better today. 

Mileage-wise, I have surpassed the equivalent total for a thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail in five months, eighteen days. That’s pretty average for hikers who complete the AT, I think. For a coast to coast hike, well, I still have a couple of months + to go. I’m averaging 19 miles per day hiked. I have taken tons of zero days and have chosen my own route and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

At this juncture, I may or may not be attempting to stealth camp in the bushes behind an unnamed rest area allegedly somewhere in the western United States. It behooves me not to tell you anything further.

No storms in the forecast, thank goodness. 

Peace and Love Under Cover,

Palomino
