Very windy last night with rain. Tarps held up in one of the heavier winds we have experienced. We continue to be happy with them.
Rain most of day. We are quite tired of walking in the rain. The wet shoes being the worst, wet clothes that stick to our bodies, wet packs. Rain sucks out here.
Walked through a pasture with cows. There were three calves that were running around entertaining us.
Hiked up the Dragons Tooth. Probably lots of great views with all of the ridge walking we did today, but visibility was at 75 yards for most of the day so it felt like we were walking in a cloud….which can be cool, but we were wet. The climb up Dragons Tooth was fairly slow and slippery. We did fine going up it but because of the scrambling, it slowed us down a bit on a day we were hoping to make miles.
Wanted to get to a shelter tonight since Mace’s tent was wet from last night’s rain. This meant over a 22 mile day. We walked in the dark at the end of the day. Setup hammocks in rain and dark…after cooking and eating, we finally got in hammocks a bit after 8.
