Pleasant strolling got me to Monarch Pass where I was supposed to pick up a mail drop, but a little mix up happened so my package wasn’t there. Hitched 20 miles to the town of Salida and opted to get a hotel room. Urban stealth camping is fun, but darn it, I wanted to just lay on a bed for my zero day tomorrow. My box wouldn’t be available until Monday when the P.O. opened, so I coughed up way too much money for two nights in a room. Ordered a pizza and just relaxed. Around midnight I got bored of the television so went on a back alley walk around town, just bumbling down the dark streets, poking my head around corners.
