We left town today and got back on the trail in the afternoon. We went up for 2 miles to the highest point on the trail thus far: 5,000 feet at Standing Indian Mountain before heading downhill for several miles. We hiked a total of 8.5 miles today, and I am feeling really great after taking a rest day. We have about 4 days until we hit the NOC, our next resupply. Tonight is chilly but much warmer than last night, and it should warm a little more tomorrow as well.
