It was cold out again this morning, but definitely not as cold as the last few mornings. The sun was on us pretty quickly and it warmed up nicely. Of course, the wind continues to be a constant, but at least it was warm.
A lot of the walking today was a continuation of the cross country walking of yesterday…with some dirt roads thrown in every once in awhile. We often had the highway in view, but it felt far away.
When we were walking this morning, we came upon three mule deer that were hanging out in some bushes near the trail. All three were bucks with really big racks. We were surprised at how close we got to them before they bounced away. We watched them run away and then hop over a fence. We have been waiting to see an animal jump one of the many fences out here, so we were happy to finally see it.
The trail finally popped us back out on the highway which we followed into town. We headed straight to McDonalds for an early lunch and then checked into a motel for the night. We are happy to be inside and out of the wind until tomorrow.
