Finally left camp and got to hike with someone knew. Booked it ten miles to our next water and the day was looking up.
The water was the infamous third gate cache and was marked by this lovely gate, after which we wandered around in the bushes until we found the incredibly obvious trail about two feet farther on.
Such an amazing thing these trail angels do!
Off into the muggy afternoon we went climbing up the ridge line and traversing our way back down.
Hitting our first big milestone...
And finally making it to our water for the night at barrel springs and a whole new group of people to hang out with.
