We great the new day and head out for our last hike of this section. The sun comes out briefly but the rain returns later in the day and stays with us for much of the day's hike. My feet are aching at this point but its my shoulders that hurt me the most. My pack straps don't have a lot of padding on them...a definite feature that I will look for in my next pack.
As bad as my feet hurt, Kurt is in worse shape. He has blisters on both feet that are extremely painful and it is slowing him down a bit, but Kurt is one of the toughest dudes I know. He trudges forward knowing that with each step he takes it gets us closer to end of our hike.
