Day 34 - A Hot Trot to Casa de Luna

I was slow going this morning until the swiftly warming temperature got me on my feet with my umbrella out.

Our hike was exposed to the sun, making for one of the warmest hikes in weeks. There was one water source in this 24 mile section and it was swarming with bees but thankfully still flowing. 

Sometimes you gotta take what you can get.

We had a tempting view of a private lake for a good chunk of the hike.

By mid afternoon, It was so hot that I was stepping over hikers whose heads were stuffed under bushes or literally laying passed out on the trail. 

I woke from my siesta and met up with a group of friends and we hiked the remaining 7 miles to the highway that would whisk us away to Casa de Luna.

There were some epic views along the way.

There were five of us so we were hoping to flag down a truck to catch a ride into town.

Success!

We had company in the back of the truck.

A couple of miles later, we arrived safely at Casa de Luna and were greeted by friends who were all decked out in Hawaiian shirts.

We'd made it just in time for dinner.
