It poured rain all night and continued into the morning. I planned to get up at 4 am but stayed in my bag for 3 more hours to wait for the rain to subside. It never stopped but it slowed down a bit when I got up. I was soaked and miserable all day. Not much to say about the day. It was a relatively low climbing day. Couldn’t see much due to clouds and fog.
I decided to stop early at almost 18 miles as the next couple of miles was straight up and I’d be walking in the dark. I found a camp spot that was mostly alone, just one other tent, but parked far enough away to allow some privacy. I mostly just wanted out off the rain at that point.
