Steep climb to start the day again. Great sunrise views with lots of colors. All 9 of us were up and moving at 5am today at the shelter.
Blue skies and highs in the 50’s and 60’s for the most part. No wind, felt nice and warm in the afternoon. Hope we have similar weather for the rest of the hike!
Water was a slight issue this afternoon. Some of the sources were pretty dirty. We were able to get some from a trickle that was just before the campsite fortunately.
Miles went fast for the most part today until end..a combination of being tired and some unswitchbacked uphills drained us a bit. We still made it into camp before dark.
Sleeping at 1900 mile mark tonight at a campsite about 9 miles north of Hot Springs. Just Sensei, Goldfish and us as the group we have been camping with is spread out over 3 places tonight but getting together for breakfast in the am. Looking forward to that breakfast in town tomorrow morning.
Tarping again and have the pitch set a little differently just to experiment. Hoping that we will have less condensation issues this way.
