Cosmic Wimpout

Day 13: Back on the Trail on Bannock's Pass

That morning in Leadore we only had to get our food ready for the next stint, ship our bounce box, and pay for the inn. We ate breakfast at the Silver Dollar again. I had some pretty thick buttermilk pankakes and they were incredible. We got some of our food ready at the Stage Stop, just a large corner store with all sorts of snacks and anything else that we needed. I got an Arizona Cherry-Lime Rickey, a Pop-tart, a Klondike bar, and five Snicker's bars for my Snurritos. Sam Blom at the Leadore inn was an incredibly generous and kind man. I am very thankful for him taking us all the way up to Bannock pass.

We got on the trail a little after 3:00 p.m. and stopped at about 8:15 p.m. Before we got settled inside of our tents we decided to play a little frisbee with a small synthetic circle with lead sinkers for fishing all around it. It used to be made by EMS but I don't think you can purchase it anymore. After dinner we played Cosmic Wimpout; a silly board game made by backpackers, for backpackers. The trail seemed to look like it was under maitenance from Bannock pass to our camp site. There were some new fences that I was unfamiliar with, and a lot of neon red and yellow flagging tape on the side of the trail. There were some additional springs as well.
