Daily Log: Day 68

Meetup: Day 68 – Friday 9/18/2020 – 2223.5 – cloudy, some sun, cool. My typical 5 am sit up, get out of sleeping bag, pack it away, pack my pillow bag, do potty, pack backpack, put tent away, and eat breakfast. On trail at 5:45 am. Several medium climbs but with the day pack they were easy. I quickly passed two bow hunters coming the other way. I went through lots of meadows, pines, and aspens. I went from one mesa to the next. I arrived at Justin and the Jeep at about 2:40 pm. I set up tent, and prepped for tomorrow. TOMORROW IS THE LAST DAY! Only 10 more miles. I will be returning to the spot were we were snowed-in for three days.
