I got amazing sleep last night despite it being cold and a little rainy. I didn’t wake up until 6:00 a.m. I plan on sleeping in for the rest of the trail and I am so excited for it! When I went to light my stove for breakfast this morning. I found out that my lighter wasn’t working. Bummer! I was really looking forward to my first hot breakfast since somewhere in the desert? I ate my oatmeal cold. When I said goodbye to midnight. She will still bundled in her hammock, luckily she was awake and gave me a lighter to borrow! My morning started slow because it was so cold and rainy out. I kept stopping to change layers until I got it right. It was lightly raining on and off all morning but I was getting soaked from water off the plants next to the trail. There were blueberries absolutely everywhere today. I was stopping to pick them constantly. I saved some for later. I ended up stopping on top of grizzly Peak 10 miles into the day. Since I had a lighter now, I took the time to make oatmeal and added maple walnuts and the wild blueberries I picked. I was quite proud of the creation and it was delicious. I moved on downhill for a while. Clouds kept blowing through the mountains keeping everything wet. I took my next break on a hillside in the middle of a ton of massive rocks. Diva caught up to me around 2:00 p.m. and we hike together for the rest of the day. The last 2 miles to camp at Sally Ann Lake were absolutely stunning. Despite being cold and wet all day, the views were totally worth it. I was so happy to be at camp by 6:00 p.m.. I cooked a breakfast skillet for dinner and then immediately got in my sleeping bag. I shivered until I was warm and then fell asleep.
