The wind was really strong today but it was still hot. It was boring hiking up the aquaduct for 16 miles. Wish I has a skateboard for the covered part. Lots of Joshua trees bit little shade. Every plant out here is sharp and thorny.
Cottonwood camp is a place where the aquaduct crosses over a dry creek bed and it provided some relief from the wind and sun. Winds all night blew fine dust into everything. Oh well, such is life on the Mohave.
