7/6/18 Hiked 4.1 miles to mile 1160.8. Spent the last two days with my wife and family. It was good to be with them. It was hard saying goodbye today as I probably will not see them until I complete the hike. I also attended today the funeral of a friend who died in a motorcycle accident, Gary Wallace. It was good to be able to be there. Funerals help to keep life in focus.
I started late today and just hiked to the Peter Grub hut. I have fond memories of being here before in the summer and winter.
