Woke up at about 8ish. After yesterday being so bad, I figured a late start might give me more time to recoup. Got back to Bob Hat trail junction and started heading north. Kept crossing quite a few streams. As the trail kept getting higher and higher, I ran into a small sandy brown rattler. He was very hard to see in the shade. Luckily, I saw him just enough time. The difference with this lil one was he curled up in a ball. He was also quite shay and timid. I pushed him off the trail so Baldor wouldn’t step on him. Had to keep hiking till I hit the spring, since I was low on water. Set up camp in a saddle. As I was eating mac and cheese, a massive beetle came flying in at like 10 mph. The darn beetle hit me right in the chest. It actually really hurt. I swatted him to the ground and stomped on him till he was flat as a pancake. Closed the door on my tent, just in case any other beetles where on suicide missions. With tons of elevation I got worn out.
