Day 84: Too hot to hike

31.0 miles (49.9km)

Should have taken a picture of this bench when it was light. Nice quote by mathematician Henri Poincare.

By getting up at 3h30 it was of course again too dark to see the waterfall but we really wanted to beat the heat and we really needed to do about 30 miles given the Castella post office hours. By 5h in the morning it was already quite hot.

Luckily there was some tree cover along the trail. Given our early start, we covered a solid 22 miles before taking an extended lunchbreak near Kosk spring, waiting out some of the afternoon heat. We all needed a nap..
