We woke up to sunshine which we were all incredibly happy about 🙂
About 45 minutes after leaving camp I came to a lake with a nice breeze and sunny spot and decided to dry out my gear then and there… I was worried about the dark storm clouds that seemed to be hovering over the direction we were headed.
There was another deep stream we had to ford and when I arrived there, everyone was waiting on the other side for me, clapping me on as I walked through the water which reached over my knees this time. It was lovely and refreshing and I could have gone for a swim.
In the afternoon we passed these rocks on the trail telling us we could get AT&T phone service, the first time to get service in 6 days… We sat on the trail here for quite a while!
