We just got to Twin Lakes and checked in to the Nordic Inn B&B. We got a king sized bed which is much bigger than our tent. And the bed is a feather bed – kind of like our down bags.

I’m sitting on a bench out front looking across the lake at that killer pass that we did yesterday and the highest peak in CO, eating coke & potato chips.

It rained last night, but not enough to really test the tent, but enough to make us bring our shoes inside.

When the snacks are gone, I’ll shower and give my dirty smelly clothes to the B&B lady.

Too bad that today was such a short hiking day. This is the day that AT tradition has chosen for nude hiking and we won’t be able to participate. The best that we can do is wear only rain suits while our laundry is being done.

… Gottawalk tomorrow
