We slept in somewhat this morning after our hard day yesterday. The fact that it was chilly contributed as well. After breakfast, Jewel Thief ventured into the half-buried privy and emerged later looking like the privy was giving birth.
After the first 2 miles, we left the snow behind us – probably for good in this section. The trail was quite varied today: we climbed small peaks & ridges, as well as hiked through canyons with rivers at the bottom. For most of the day we criss-crossed Highway 2-bringing back memories of the Blue Ridge Parkway on the Appalachian Trail. Without snow & doing lower miles, we made it into camp at 6:30 & had enough light where I could cook & eat dinner without a headlamp. Tomorrow we plan on making a big dent in the 47 miles left till Agua Dulce.
