Four days after my bout with poodle bush, it seemed as if I had dodged a bullet. A slight rash had appeared after day one, but as it hadn’t gotten any worse, I assumed that I was pretty much in the clear. Hmm, may have jumped the gun a touch….

On a significantly brighter note, wandered through some picturesque stands of Joshua Trees at day’s end. Extremely windy; fortunately managed to find a relatively sheltered camping spot just as night was falling.
