Because I did not have permission from the Gila River Tribal Council to walk and pitch my tent on their lands I made up 24 miles by walking in Queen Creek. I walked 12 miles on Saturday and 10 on Sunday. The other 2 miles I will make up on Tues.
I am blessed to have the help of Aubrie and Ben York. I have been able to get up early, have a cup of coffee and a light breakfast, shower, prep my feet for the days’ walk, fill my camel pack with water and head out to walk. Aubrie and Ben gave me a key so that when they are out I can take care of my needs, dinner, shower, laundry, etc and then get to bed early.
I am so grateful to them for their generosity and gentle ways.
