Bear Valley to Arch Rock and back, via Mt Wittenberg. 11.4 miles, or 13, or 14.5 — according to who you talk to. Felt fine until the last two miles when massive blisters sprouted on everyone’s feet. This is the fly in the ointment — who do you do to avoid blisters? This time I think it was the superfeet inserts I use to avoid getting plantar faschiitis rubbin on the inside of my heel. I guess I try moleskin next time, but you know a blister will just appear somewhere else.
Also, M is suddenly much braver than I am. We had to climb through the arch to get to the beach, which didn’t bother her at all. Hmm.
K came to join us for the ritual post-hike hamburger.
