Arizona Trail Passage 2
Woke up refreshed and energized. The sound sleep I got in my hammock last night made up for my lack of sleep in the hotel. Guess it makes sense that my hammock now feels like I'm in my "own bed" since I've spent more nights in it over the past year than anywhere else.

We camped in Parker Canyon amid big spreading oaks, near a stream with great flow. Even with this gorgeous campsite, it's hard to stop hiking at the end of the day. My legs and body feel so strong and I long to keep hiking til dark like I do when I hike solo. I miss what it feels like to be tired and sore at the end of the day. I didn't anticipate that it would feel this difficult to do shorter miles.
