Day #5 – Hostel Day

The hike today was shorter and ended up at a hostel for the night. Went to Walmart and resupplied. Also got a hot shower (yea!!!) and did laundry.

Started out in the rain and cold, but the weather cleard up nicely. Stopped for lunch in a great spot.


The trail went on and off the ridge with some crazy climbs.

Who decided to put the trail here?


Tomorrow I’m getting a ride up the trail and hiking 20 miles back to the hostel without my pack (slack-packing).  OMG 😲 I hope I can make it, but a 20 mile day is on my to-do list.  Wish me luck…
