Day 110

Nov 5

It was below freezing all night.  My bag was warm and I was fine but I had to sleep with my water filter, as they will crack and be destroyed if they freeze.  It’s becoming a habit as I don’t want to be without a filter.  I filter all water, even if it seems safe from a spring.  I take no chances and have not gotten sick as other hikers I’ve run into have.

This pond is mostly froze over.  The pond I ran into just before this one was completely frozen but I needed water so I had to use my hiking pole to break a hole in the ice to extract the water.
