Day 84: Even 18 Miles Can Be a Day Off

Started: Alder Spring (1236.9)

Ended: Tentsite (1254.7)

Total Miles: 17.8

It was a most excellent day. I slept very well. We woke up and had a single plan. Hike as quickly as possible to the middle fork of the Feather River and relax. So, we hiked down the 13 miles.

There I ate a quick lunch and jumped in. It has been a long time since I spent two hours in the water exploring, diving off rocks, and just being a kid again.

It was strange swimming in my underwear with a bunch of strangers, but I’m reasonably thin now.

Unfortunately I could not stay there. The trail will not hike itself. Fortunately, most of the work was done. Five miles to a spring, a campsite and some well deserved rest.
