Week six was only 40.9 miles but two day I carried my backpack (3/4 loaded)! And we hosted a 4th of July party for the family.
Sunday was a day off....Monday was 9.7 miles....Tuesday was 5.6 miles .......Wednesday was 13.7 miles.
Thursday was a gold star day since I carried my backpack for the first time around the lake for 4.09 miles. Friday we cleaned house for our family party for the boat parade that started at 9 pm.
Saturday was the 4th and we enjoyed a slow 7.8 hike in the hills with my backpack. Today has been a rest day watching the the Tour de France and the finals of the FIFA woman's soccer. Great game!
The hills are very brown which is normal in the summer as we live in the high desert. We sometimes forget as we water everything and usually have beautiful green landscaping everywhere.
But because of the drought they have stopped watering the public greenbelts along the streets and everything is rapidly turning brown. They have installed special sprinklers for each tree to hopefully keep them alive. If the predicted rainstorms happen this fall...it should all be green when I return home at the end of October.
