Very low mileage day today. Only 7.2 miles. I’m very unhappy about that. I was wanting to do a minimum of ten and was hoping for fifteen.
To start off with I got out late this morning. My work for stay chore was changing bedding on the bunks. There were five of us to do 92 bunks and we couldn’t start until after the guests ate breakfast and got out of their rooms. I didn’t get out of there until 10:00.
Then the trail was very rocky and the high winds on the mountains made it hard to keep your balance.
I got to this hut at 5:30. It was to late to go on to the next campground so I’m staying here and doing work for stay again. I checked before agreeing because I didn’t want to leave late again tomorrow morning. My chore will be an evening chore.
Besides sleeping inside, one of big benifits is getting to eat the leftovers after the guests eat. It’s really good food.
Tomorrow I’ll be climbing the last of The Presidentials. Mt Madison. I’ve been hearing the 3000 foot descent is very challenging. I’m certainly planning on going farther tomorrow.
