Another windy night. I woke up early and started packing. Lots of people came by. I met Cory from Denver so I immediately started talking about the Broncos and Peyton Manning.
I said goodbye to Russ after heating up some water. Then I walked 23 miles to Barrel Springs. Stopped at the third gate water cache and took approx 1 quart only. I walked with Udi awhile and soon it seemed we were ahead of everyone since we could see miles ahead and behind.
When we eventually reached Barrel Springs there were wonderful signs that led to trail angels. Food and beer were consumed. The best surprise of the trip!
Oh, I also saw a jet go screaming through the canyon I had just passed through. Top gun.
