Thought about taking a zero day but we have good weather and didn’t want to waste a day without rain. (We also realized that we have not had a zero day since NJ).
We got a late a start out of the hostel, after 8:30. Were thrilled to walk outside and be in great weather with a blue sky and sun.
Terrain was good not too much up and down…just small rollers. Got to the shelter before dark….cooked and got in hammocks up before dark.
Beardo nearly got lost looking for water. The water was down hill about .3 mile from the shelter, but was hard to find and the trail wasn’t very well marked, and it was dark.
At the shelter with group of Southbounders: Phoenix, Framework, Moose, Denim Chicken, Right Click….same group of guys that were at the hostel….they cooked a pizza over the fire and gave Beardo some…nice!
