Day 27


It was a quiet day as we headed into the hilly countryside. The area looks like a mix of mountain hills and American south west desert with brown all around and streams cutting deep canyons in them. The focus of the day was crossing into the valley in which we will walk to our next city many days away. In reality this meant walking up a single mountain hill half of the day.


One of the most enjoyable parts of this journey has been the changing landscapes. I have not before been on an expedition through so many environments. Generally it is backpacking in this mountain range, canoeing in this lake system, or kayaking along a shoreline in a single park. Already we are in our third very distinct ecosystem and I look forward to continuing to watch the change as the land passes by.
