Day 22: Van Husen to Mile 299

May 2, 2014
24 miles
Mile 299

We woke up early ready for a bit mile day despite my alarm not going off. The morning was beautiful.

We hiked through an old fire area. While the views beyond were beautiful, the charred remains of dead trees was kind of sad. Eventually we made it to a wonderful water source. We ran into Mighty Mouse and Tom Cat, I hadn’t seen them since Ziggy and the Bear’s.  It was good to catch up. From there we continued to push. The day was hot, so at one stream crossing it was time to cool off. The water was wonderful, a much needed break.

Although we wanted to hit the big 300 mile marker it just wasn’t in the cards. We ended up a mile short but had an amazing view for sunset. Our campsite is looking down at the valley below. Tomorrow a big milestone and hot springs.
