I was ready and all packed to go. Tried getting in touch with the Ranger station to see if any spaces were left but just a recording. So I pulled out with plan B in mind. The difference in the temps in plan A is that Madera Canyon is 5,200 ft elevation and plan B is only 2,100 makes a big difference in heat.
There were lots of opened sites, the office still isn't opened for the season but they have the honest box. But when I got out to get the envelope the heat hit me like an inferno. I road around looking at sites with trees for shade and close to a restroom. But it just felt like the temps were rising pretty fast. Even with all the frozen bottles I had I knew they wouldn't last.
So turned around and came back home. I'm glad I did because it turned out to be 91 degrees that afternoon and out at the camp ground the temps are higher. The cool house sure felt good.
Luckily I only had to unload the cooler and bring the camera in. I'll will give it another shot next week as they are calling for temperatures in the mid 70's.
About 1 1/2 weeks ago I really rammed my poor little toe into a container with water bottles and I don't think I broke it but it sure turned a dark purple and swelled up pretty good. That is all gone but it still hurts pretty good. There wouldn't be anything they could do about so I didn't bother getting it checked out. It sure has put and damper on my bike riding. So hopefully in the next day or 2 I'll give it another try.
Good Night All
