We had to make up a little time today but our miles didn't come without breaks. Just before lunch we ran across a bunch of hiking gear on the side of the trail. there was a tent, a sleeping bag, and a bunch of clothing strewn all over that had clearly been there for a while. I dunno, maybe someone got dragged off by a bear...After lunch we felt super lazy and Disney read while I took a nap. Lunch lasted until 3 and we got back on the trail just in time to walk through intermittent rain. We popped into the next shelter to find Wisp, Double Vision, Jukebox Hero, and Solo. We hung out there for another hour before the final 5 miles to our shelter. DV and JBH are here too, and we are planning on all doing a work for stay at this 'commune' place a couple days from now.
