Cool start to the day with two layers of clothes. Clear in the am and could see the moon and stars.
Just before sunrise we walked through a pasture that was surrounded by the mountains. Was beautiful as the sun came over the top. Much of the walk today we could see through the trees to the valley where it appeared to be either hazy or cloudy. Very pretty.
Nice trail all day with great weather and clear skies. Was actually even warm in the afternoon as we came off the mountain ridge.
Shoes still hurt Sweet Pea’s feet unfortunately.
We received some apples and water from a woman who was picking up another hiker. It was a nice treat in a section where water has been scarce. The apple was great as well….we don’t get enough fresh fruit out here.
Staying at a shelter that was described as being on the shores of the lake, but is not. We are kinda bummed about that. We have not seen many lakes in the last several hundred miles.
We made a fire to cook with tonight since we had the time. It is significantly warmer than last night. Still heading to bed early. In our sleeping bags by 7.
