Ice on Tank Seven Creek

KarlG - CT - Sep 7, 2010 - Day 24: Tuesday
It was cold last night, there was ice on Tank Seven Creek when I awoke. Piece by piece I put on all of my clothes during the night to keep warm. Since I use my extra clothing for a pillow, all I had for a pillow was my Tilley hat by morning. Once I started hiking I hit the sun in 15 minutes and was back in my short sleeve shirt soon after. The views from Sargents Mesa were were terrific! Sargents Mesa also marked the end of my cell reception. There was a lot of elevation gain, but in bite size chunks. I stopped at 6:30PM as it started to rain. I am really liking this DuoMid tent! I saw no one today except cows.
