Met up with Molasses and we found we were te same hiking speed but she couldn’t do the miles I could. I left her when she went to see spy rock. Since it was raining I didn’t feel the need to walk out to it for a non view.
Thought about taking a track that would have cut 3 moles off my day but it would have taken me past Harper’s Creek Shelter Didn’t think I would make the distance to the next shelter past that I needed a shelter as back up as O was having trouble with my tent poles.
Very confusing trying to find the shelter in amongst all the different tracks.
Set up my tent on a beautifull spot next to the shelter and the pole snapped. I had to move into the shelter. Even there were only four of us and it was early I hot a hard time from an obnoxious little man until I snapped at him
