Day 42 6-29-2015 Sleep 2100 - 700
Honestly, I didn’t take very good notes for this day. I remember the feelings of depression setting in. I was feeling down from the sudden stop of hiking and the thrill that goes along with it. But also, I was thinking in general my trip was over and that was really getting me down. Moss Water and Dragonfly did the shuttle tour of the rim. They wouldn’t be back until after we had to check out. I tentatively said goodbye, but I think we all knew I would still be there when they got back. I just ate and lay comatose outside the store. I did some research on metatarsal stress fractures, blisters underneath calluses, infected blisters and septic infections. It was actually relieving to try and figure out what was wrong with my foot and what options I had or what I could do to help. All in all I didn’t come up with much, but laying my feet out in the sun and trying to keep them dry and dry out the calluses as much as possible.

|Even the parking lots|
|Lotion and Water; I am all dried out!|
