Saturday: (04/02) On trail at 0700. I continued my steep climb only to go back down and crossed Bouquet Canyon Road and have another long steep climb and then go down again.
I was surprised to see more mushrooms in the desert. the one on the left above is bigger than a soft ball. I think is turns into the one on the right in later life. Animals seem to like to eat them.
Not too many miles today, only 13 miles. I camped at MM471. Saw a nice black snake. GPS 34.608985, -118.361635.
