Day #26 – Pay up…

Today I am paying the price for all the miles I did yesterday. I just finished climbing my second mountain for the day and I am tired, very tired.

I met one through hiker on the trail this morning


This is Deke.

I’m not sure how far I’m going to make it today but there is a swimming hole at the next road crossing and I probably will stop there.

Update:  the swimming hole was awesome, although I stayed clear of the snake in the water.  I hiked another 3.2 miles (and 1,000 ft elevation gain) to the Cove Mtn shelter – total 11.9 today.  My companion for the night is awesome as well.
