3 days after the minor surgery on my wrist, I am back on trail. A big thank you to the awesome crew at Scott Valley Rural Clinic!

Had arranged a ride back to the trail head for 9 am. Thought that would be best so that we would not linger. Belgian Red, Kpax, section hiker Glen and I were all on trail by about 10 am. At my first break I checked the map and thought it would be great to get in 24 miles today. I saw Kpax about 10 miles into the day at our first water and mentioned my plan. He got excited about it, so I took a short lunch to see if I could cram in 13 afternoon miles.

I didn't arrive in camp until 830 pm but did find Kpax here. Because I was so late, I got to see the sunset before descending into the valley.

The day was nice and cool because of the clouds. No sprinkles though. After kinda a duh moment I put on the fly to my tent. Chance of thundershowers and camped in a cool valley.
