Well, it was bound to happen sooner or later. We woke up to rain this morning and it continued throughout the morning. If we wanted to walk, it meant rain-gear and getting on with it. I walked. It wasn’t too bad. I had an eight foot apron and the rain was more of an occasional sprinkle than anything else. We got through 9 miles and I was pretty happy about how the morning went. Then we took a lunch break and the skies opened up. The afternoon walk was a washout. I lost the eight foot apron and between that and the hard rain, it was decided it was too dangerous to walk. So, l took a nap. 😴
Now, when I was walking in the morning, I knew there were mountains to my East, but I couldn’t see them due to the clouds. This picture is what I woke up to after the rain stopped. It’s hard to believe they were nowhere to be seen earlier.
I did go out after dinner and walked another 3.5 miles, so the day wasn’t a total loss. The terrain is flat and a lot of scrub bushes, but there is a lot of green around. We got to Lynndyl and head toward Nephi tomorrow. The weather was cold, rainy and with a moderate wind. Tomorrow promises to be better.
