Tuesday was our second hike, and the first day when I started to feel ill. We hiked through the same park again but with a herpetologist to show us the frogs and reptiles we found in the park. We found a salamander, frogs and a beaver that happened to be on the same path. I got some really nice photos of these animals!! We didn’t do much, but finished the rest of our artist talks that we didn’t get to on Sunday and chilled out on Tuesday night. This night I also started to feel ill and had to eventually sleep down stairs in the common room because my sore throat was so close to my gag reflex that it made me throw up whenever I tried to lay down and I didn’t want to disturb anyone else. I felt awful for disturbing anyone, but it was hard not to. I ended up staying home at the ranch the following afternoon because the activity that they were going to was an hour away and I didn’t feel comfortable enough to sit in a car that long and not throw up.
