21 miles today
2145 miles total
Last night was perfect sleeping weather. I woke feeling rested and back to normal. It was a cool morning, with thick clouds that threatened to drop rain at a moments notice. It was great. We were on trail around 8. The trail was a wonderful grade. We were able to cover many miles quite quickly.
A highlight of today was Alder Spring which was so cold and delicious it was perfect! Well worth the short trip of trail.
We crushed 21 miles fairly easily today. We are trying to line up town on Friday, so we are averaging around 20 or so mules to make the last day short. Plus this way we get to enjoy our days and not worry so much about getting to the next place.
Tonight we played some cribbage after dinner. Sadly I got skunked. It was a nice way to wrap up the day.
