Cooler today. Waited until noon to get a ride to the trailhead. Then it was hiking as fast as I can since it seems like I'm falling behind the pack. It didn't help that I was passed by Tuna Helper. He is 12 days in to the hike and passed 500 miles! If you do the math, its mind boggling. He is going for the record and it was all I could do to keep up for a few miles.
Grey clouds pushed thier way over the ridge from the west in the afternoon. The weather got cold. The first grove of coulter pine I climbed to I made camp. John, another thru, joined me late that evening. We had a good conversation before turning in.
Glad to be back on the trail!
