(Sunday, 8:30pm) La de da de de. La de da de da. There is zero chance of a fire in these here mountains, Smokey Bear!
Today, Sunday, we hiked another 13.5 miles in the pouring rain. At this point the mountains are completely saturated and so are our shoes and socks. Prairie Dog has said she doesn’t believe they will ever be dry again and I don’t have the confidence they will to convince her otherwise. Lol.
At some point we will send you a picture and you will say, “Oh what a pretty little brook with a sweet little waterfall!” And I will reply, “Well actually that is the trail.”
Today we “forded every stream” all day long. ” Someone in the shelter tonight said it was like crossing a creek but never getting to the other side.
It is silent here now. Most hikers are already asleep. I will be joining them soon. I am realizing now why the silence is so noticeable. It has stopped raining!!!
Blessings and affection, Dragonfly
