5/7/18. Woke up with the sun and hit the trail early. It was windy and cold but warmed up quickly and took all my extra layers off within 45 minutes.
Had two big climbs today which provided great views to the east and to the west. I passed up to first water source as it was contaminated with uranium.
By the time I got to the second climb of the day it was very hot it was a difficult climb for me possibly because I was dehydrated. I planned on meeting my friends at the top of the climb in camp there but they had hiked on another 4 miles down to a campground. So I pushed on and completed my hike about 8:30 P.M. tonight.
