I decided to track my hike today with the GaiaGPS app and got the above interesting stats. It uses too much battery to do this everyday but I’m almost out to a town. It was a long day but I felt pretty good. I paced myself, drank a lot and ate almost constantly. I knew this section would be long and hard. I brought 6 full days of food. Ugh! This morning I still had 2+ days of food left. I’ve often been too exhausted to eat. I’ll be out early tomorrow.
The best part of today was up high on the Shedroof Divide. I have no idea how it got this name. The views were grand.
Then it was back into a burn area. The Noisy Creek Fire burned here last year. There has been much trail clearing and restoration since then. It was much appreciated to have clear trail.
I got to the last campsite by the creek at 6:15 and choose to just keep walking a couple more miles to get to the NFS campground by Sullivan Lake. The campground isn’t anything special but I have a picnic table to sit at, a privy and running water. Plus I just have flat walking and hopefully a hitch to get to town tomorrow.
