A solid, but uneventful, day of hiking. Although, Hot Fudge and Darth Vada did manage to get ahead of me without anyone realizing it for some time. I had been just off trail filling up water at a spring and then took a 45min siesta by the junction and was surprised they hadn’t caught up to me. A little later I stopped at a cabin and took a lunch break and another siesta…they still hadn’t caught up. Finally, in the afternoon at the last water for a 12mi stretch I saw Hot Fudge. She was as confused as I was as to how they got ahead of me. Apparently, they walked by me while I was getting water at the first spring.
Unfortunately, there were no lakes to swim in today 😦 but It looks like I should be able to set it up to camp near a nice looking lake tomorrow.
