Trail Journal: Days 1-3, by the numbers

I have a buch of pictures to load, but Scrapbook is being cranky. In the meantime, here's some trail notes. There's more coming. I'm still typing.

- Kady

Day 1, Thurs 4/27
R is for rain. (50 degrees at 11:00 am!)

Day 2, Fri 4/28
F is for Finally Friday, free food.
Mileage: 20.6 [Today: 4.7]
Campsite: Lake Morena campground
