At some point in the night, one of the weekend hikers woke up and made a good deal of noise. They had forgotten about their smellables and were struggling to put up their bear bag in the dark.
I slept in this morning until 6 am or at least I tried to, but I woke up and checked my watch at 5:59.45. I watched as the last 15 seconds counted down before starting my day. I packed up my gear and took my time to make sure I had enough food for the next stretch. I was good for four full days’ worth.
