The Dam

Short hot day

Woke up this morning knowing very well that if we diverted to Burney for another two day layover in a hotel that I would want to catch a bus (or whatever transportation was available) and leave the trail. That's how much I dislike hiking in the heat. I called the hotel and left a message that circumstances had changed and to cancel the reservation, called the hubby regarding the same thing, and then packed up and headed for the electrical outlets to charge the phones once more before hitting the trail. We hiked to Rock Creek where there was a handful of thru hikers already there waiting out the heat under the bridge. We took a side trail and found a shady spot next to the creek and planted ourselves there for the next four hours. We soaked ourselves in the creek to keep as cool as possible in the 95 degree heat (in the shade). Ate an early dinner then continued up the trail until 7:30pm. The next campsite with water nearby was another 5.5 miles so we made camp, anticipating an early start in the morning. Had cell service so did some updating online.
