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!
