Back on the CDT 18 Miles
Big day — considering we started late. My parents dropped us off at the twin lakes convenience store and we drank soda while our phones charged. We finally got on the trail and passed by Mt. Elbert. The trail was great as we climbed, but then we hit elevation and there was snow all over the trail. It was bad, unconsolidated, deep and unpredictable. Our feet were freezing and our shins were getting attacked again. We decided to comea down by Mt. Massive -bushwached down - through boggy, slushy snow and mud. Found a trail and set up camp late by a fish hatchery.
So many dinner options.
