Location: Jenkins Shelter

Today's Miles: 22.0

Total Miles: 578.6

 

Long, hard day today. Weather was hot, water was scarce. Today was the day of a huge climb, a 2,100 footer over five miles. Definitely slowed us down a lot today, and the rest of the day was no joke either. Between the weather, and the shortage of water throughout the day, I'd chalk today up as one of the hardest and longest days yet.

 

Got into camp late, nearing 7:30pm. Just enough time to set up my stuff in the shelter, make some food, and get ready for bed.

 

Decisions tomorrow as well with similar temperatures predicted and another long stretch without water or camping available.

 

But I will leave that for tomorrow.
