written May 11, 2017 @ 03:30 AM after hiking 18.90 miles

After our scorcher of a day yesterday (all 9 miles), we decided to take it easy and only do 18 and change.

We got to camp and hung out with fellow hiker Michael, who is currently attempting his 8th thru-hike. He's a great guy, who also happens to hike with a violin.

During the hike, my knee was also giving me grief. I'm not sure what is up with it, but it's probably because of hiking like 20 miles per day. Maybe I slept on it funny last night. Whatever the cause, I was extremely painful to walk on, especially at the end of the day (in fact, it decided our campsite for us).

But hey: hot springs tomorrow!
