Due to some camping areas being closed from bear activity, we had to do either a pretty short day or a pretty long one today. I think we both woke up knowing it would be the former option. We took a mile side trail to a campground with a store and grill first thing. We had some breakfast sandwiches and resupplied for the next few days, hung out with some other hikers for a bit, had a milkshake, then got back on the trail. We intended to hit the second shelter we passed today, but the first one we came to was the best shelter we’ve seen, and some friends were staying there, so we only did 5 miles today! It’s kind of fun to relax in the woods instead of in town. Back to the grind tomorrow!
