Total trip miles: 1728
I had a rough morning. Sunrise is pretty and the trail is heading downhill, but I think the ankle is getting to me. It doesn't seem to be getting worse but the constant limp and 2 mile per hour pace is hard mentally and physically.
Looking back from the pass.
Then it was 7 miles of new "trail." Trail is pushing it, there were signs within your sight line and a split between overgrown uneven 2 track and trampled grass through hole filled cow pastures, slow going but at least I could see where to go. This section had green carsonite posts which are so much better than the brown I'm used to, I could actually see them!
A long day of nothing too thrilling just too much time in my head. Towards the evening I find Rest Stop and OD waiting for me. We walk on the actual divide for a bit through more old burn.
I call it quits early, the view is great and I'm beat. OD heads on another mile or so to a spring because he's out of water. I'm sure we'll see him again but for now I'm just enjoying sitting still.
