Six days ago, we started 2 days and 85 miles behind. As of last night, we're only 17 miles behind. Yesterday was awesome, but grueling...12 hours is a long walk. 

This pic is a stock image, because it was about 10pm when we got to the Mission in Carmel. The compound was locked, so I jumped the wall to lay hands on the building to pray. (Before you judge me, ask yourself if you've ever exceeded a posted speed limit.) 

Note: The other side of the adobe wall was a much higher drop (in the pitch black dark) than the shorter side I scaled. (Cue "Mission Impossible" soundtrack.) Thank you God for no broken ankles and no encounters with the Carmel police department.
