Day nine. San Ysidro to Warner Springs. Arrived at 9:30 AM. Total hiking miles: 5-6. Meeting a lot of fabulous thru hikers at Warner Springs, a hot springs resort. Reconnected with Patty a.k.a. “rock dancer” and Kaye. Met Steve, Paul, Pierre, Special K, Outpost and Echo. Had breakfast burrito at restaurant. Hot sulfur pools! Snacks from Mini Mart! Hikers’ box! Wonderful Shasta at Mini Mart to bring tortillas from her home for dot and me! Sent Sue, mom, and Scout and Frodo map journals. Sent dad a duck caller I found on the trail. Body tight. Need to take advantage of clean flat floors to do some yoga. Dinner with all the thru hikers. Very sweet. Feels like family already.
