The bus took the walkers back to the stopping point from yesterday and today the walk is 9.5 miles into Furnace Creek. The walkers start out with a long steep hill in front of them and they rapidly get spread out. Suzanne is off and walking. We won’t even try to keep up with her and her flip flops.
The hills today wipe out a few of the walkers and they need rides back to the Welcome Tent. But Samantha does the entire walk both days. Now lots of other people make it both days but Samantha is only 9 years old. What a trooper. And she finishes in the middle of the pack with her Mom and her Aunt.
