4/21/18. I realize that I had missed calculated the mileage to the next resupply and was running out of food. So I needed to hike big miles today. I woke at 5 AM and was on the trail my first light at 6 AM.
I pushed hard all day but it was the temperature went up as we descended in elevation I had to slow down.
Went through a lot of burned areas with warnings of the hazards.
We had long stretches without water, up to 18 miles. Many of us camped at the ranger station, where water was available. By the end of the day I had covered 26 miles and was tired and hungry but I was able to make up the miles. My fellow hikers donated food to me so I was in good shape. Eight more miles to resupply.
