Today's route started with quite a number of ups and downs in order to gather up stairwells along the route. The sun was bright and the bathrooms were few. My feet were heavy and plodding. I passed through many miles of industrial wasteland. Amidst this, I enjoyed myself. The long stretches without turns allowed me to listen to a few podcasts, something I've done little of thus far, as navigation has demanded my attention most days. In one of the parks abutting interstate 10, I enjoyed watching a mixed-age group of men assembling hundreds of toilets.
I struggled along today and thus made the decision to just try to get to end of section D and call it quits. I don't like walking after dark, and I needed to get off my feet. Around 4pm I crossed the bridge which took me over the aquaduct and into the arts district. I continued on and finished up at Los Angeles Plaza Park. From there it was a short walk to beautiful Union Station, where I caught the purple line train towards the hotel & Reed.
