Day 33


Date: 02 Apr 2016 0700PM

Location: Hogback Ridge Shelter

Today's Miles: 15.1

Total Miles: 315.2

Cold day today with much wind. Relatively flat trail for the morning, then a massive climb up out of Devil's Fork Gap.

Good day of hiking otherwise. Body is starting to feel good on the trail and is definitely getting used to the conditioning. Starting to get a good feel for what mileage is appropriate, and what feels right. Coming out of town with five days a food and attempting twenty miles still isn't right, but increasing the miles as the food bag lightens up does feel appropriate.

Supposed to be a windy, cold night tonight (temps down in the 20's, wind gusts up to 65 mph!). Happy to have a shelter to sleep in.
