Day 12 – Fri 3/2/18

Day 12 went from Hogpen Gap to Low Gap Shelter – 4.6 miles.

It was very windy today! The wind gusts were up to 35 mph.

This morning, Suches gave Tomato and me a ride to the trailhead. He dropped Tomato off at Woody Gap on our way to Hogpen Gap.

When I got out of his FJ Cruiser, it was freezing! I had to put my rain pants on to act as a wind breaker. This was a pretty easy hike (I wanted to take it very light since this was my first day hiking with a full pack since my ankle injury).

I ended up getting to camp around 11:30 am since I got started so early (8:30 am). I considered to keep going to the next shelter, but decided I really shouldn’t push it.

It was so cold this night! I got absolutely no sleep.

Thanks for joining me on Expedition Elizabeth!
