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!
