Today’s schedule called for 25.5 miles along county roads just south of I-10, heading to the west of I-10. Since I had no shuttle again today, I did an out-and-back of 12.75 miles on those roads. 

Unfortunately, I hadn’t checked the weather, other than knowing it was going to be 90 today. So I started out in shorts and a short-sleeved shirt. Well, it was 50 degrees and shady at 8 a.m., and I froze my buns off for the first hour. But the temps rose 10 degrees every hour until hitting 90, so I was fine by 9 a.m. – and frying by the afternoon, despite sunscreen and a sun umbrella.

Substantively, nothing too notable happened today, hiking west of I-10, other than meeting some cattle and two dogs that were pretty friendly.
