Day 73: Mile 1225 (27.4)

Location: Nelson Creek

Today was a fantastic day. The bad news is that the snow is not over
yet. We had north face snow down to 6200 today. The good news is
that we never got lost today. We did lose the trail several times,
but always knew where to go. Even with the navigating, and leaving
the wonderful town of Sierra city late after breakfast....we did
almost 28 miles. What little is left of the snow is melting super
fast, and I'm pretty confident that the snowy spots north that we
heard about will be gone by the time we are there.

It was nice to have my smaller pack and Brooks shoes back. All in all
my body was happy with me today. Tomorrow, we have a full day of
hiking under 6000 feet, and should end the day at a great swimming spot!

Happy 4th of July everyone!
