Nice hot day. Despite the leafless trees, I manageed to get suburnt, even with sun screen. I even saw a snake sunning itself and a tick!
Successfully forded the feared Slickrock Creek with little problem, though again, it was thigh deep. I think I’m getting more confident about fords. Lots of ups and downs today, which was difficult in the heat.
The trail is harder to follow as its intersections aren’t well marked. Always a delight when I get to a marked intersection only to find I’m where I need to be.
