Dryden, TX to Sanderson, TX. 35 miles. 1855 miles total. Another very hot and dry day, about 97 degrees. The hot day took its toll on me today. My face is a little sunburnt (even with sunscreen). I'm not sure if it is the heat or maybe something that I ate, but I'm not feeling very good.
About 5 miles before Sanderson, I stopped at a picnic area and took a short nap. It was nice to get out of the sun, as these picnic areas all have covered tables. I rolled out my sleeping pad and layed there in the shade. After I woke up, I decided that I needed to press on.
I found a motel in Sanderson early in the afternoon and decided to go ahead and stay there for the night. The shower and a nice early bedtime did me good.
At about 9:30 pm, I woke up and decided to go across the street to a market/gas station and buy some chicken for dinner. That and a Sprite helped me to feel a little better.
