Day 7, January 9
All I remember waking up that morning was that it was so cold! It was the coldest it had been and thankfully was my last night on trail. Never would I sleep at a shelter with such high elevation knowing the temperature was going to drop like that. Backwards and I were both awake. One of us had to go wake Mom up, so we could all pack up and start moving. I was hoping that wouldn’t be me. There was no chance of me leaving my sleeping bag until we were ready to head out. Usually it’s the first thing I pack up, but today it was going to be my last. The wind was still whipping through the shelter now more than ever.
Selfie with Mom and Backwards!
Backwards said, “Man, you really want to get to the hostel.”
Back on trail, Turtle had turned to head to Deep Gap Shelter, where the guys planned to stop and eat. He was probably going to spend the night there. He had expressed interest in going to the hostel but after I told him how much it was, he didn’t seem too interested in it anymore.
