I awoke in my hammock.
I took in my surroundings. I was at the Hassayampa River Reserve. A few short miles from Wickenburg, AZ.
I hit the road as the sun rose.
I went to a Taco Bell and ate a breakfast burrito. I drank some fluids and charged devices. I wasnt there long.
I headed across town towards the library. It was another hour or so before it opened. I set up my hammock beneath a footbridge and took a little nap.
At 9 a.m., I crossed town and made it to the library. I was there to journal, but I ended up just kind of hanging out. A long siesta. I watched some youtube videos on my phone and listened to music. I continued to charge devices.
Just past 3 p.m., I left the library and crossed town.
I stopped at a Family Dollar and restocked on food. I left town.
Up, and out, of Wickenburg, AZ. It was a lot of climbing!
I kept moving. The shoulder was decent, but it was Friday night, and I was worried about reckless drivers on the road.
At 10 p.m., I stopped a little early, and set up camp along a drainage culvert down beneath the road. Coyotes off in the distance. Some sort of winged bat or bird kept flying around. I think I intruded its habitat. I slept great!
