Day 12. Tulle Springs Creek mile 137 to 149. dot and I woke up late and took our time disassembling camp. Bad dreams again. I finally got out of the tent in the morning when I said “okay, this is enough suffering. Let’s get going with our day and find other things to concentrate on.” Wandering Dot is still in a lot of pain. I took some of her weight from her pack. Mark and Holly caught up with us and hiked with us for quite some time. They are lovely. Listened to Pema Chodrin while hiking for a couple of miles. water cache mile 143. finished hiking at 6 PM. Mantra while hiking: “you can only change yourself.” Thought about my personal situation while hiking all day. Hard to share it with others.
