8/21, day 117, 9200′, 21 mi.
We got up to overcast skies and had sprinkles all day. We also had hail several times and it was large enough to hurt so we sheltered under trees.
We’re entering an area of glaciated granite with lakes and creeks.
Between showers Ken made a discovery – Huckleberries! There weren’t many, and they weren’t the best, but hopefully a sign of things to come.
No animal sightings but we did talk to a family that had been hiking and fishing. We also talked to a group of 3 horsemen. We think they were flagging the trail for construction.
