AZT Day 21. More Contemplative Trail. October 25, 2010

AZT Day 21. More Contemplative Trail. October 25, 2010

13.1 miles
Navajo Springs and side trail to  Mormon Lake Lodge (mile 262.9) to a bit past Shuff Tank (mile 276)
Total miles: 236.7 miles

It did rain hard last night and I was very happy and dry sleeping in my car. I went out to breakfast at the Early Bird Restaurant and met another woman AZT hiker.

The sheriff got me an earlier ride with a neighbor of his so I got back on the trail earlier than I thought I would.

Everything was scrubbed clean from last night’s rain. Some of the mud was pretty slippery.

None of the trail was stunning but it was a perfect trail for contemplative thinking.

I really didn't want to mess with these guys.

I met Malvin again as he was stopped eating dinner. I also picked up another water cache from Sequoia. I still haven’t used any water that wasn’t from town or a cache. But there is water out here.
