15.3 miles today. What a great day it turned out to be.
The television meteorologist got it wrong. The rain all went south. So, a challenging day for terrain, but dry rock and no additional mud are always good. I actually had to put sunscreen on.
UIt was also a spectacular day of scenery. Saddleback Mountain was the highlight.
I hiked off and on with a young man from Minnesota. His trail name is Sota. Otherwise I’m seeing fewer hikers.
I’m stealth camping tonight next to Perham Stream on an abandoned logging road. I was hoping to make it to this next shelter but I wasn’t sure I could make it before dark. I sure would prefer to be around other people and a privy. Instead I’m alone with no cell service.
Tomorrow’s terrain looks challenging again. I hope to make it at least 15 miles tomorrow.
