Eagle Rock Day Two – 16 miles

We got going about 7:25 this morning. The second hill up was a long haul. I shared some of my calories to keep everyone going. About 1030 I went to cross a swollen creek and broke one of my hiking poles. A clean break. When I got to the top of the next hill i carved out a dowel out of wood and repaired it nearly good as new.

We finished the row of hills about 1215 and had lunch. As we sat there it started raining on us. I pulled a weather report from my inreach and it said we were really only going to have rain right then. It cleared up and over the next few miles we rolled along. We visited with a guy at the falls who had cut out early from hiking and we saw he found a hitch back to his car.

We were feeling good so we headed on down the trail. We had a couple of very wet river crossings and after the last one I just sat in the water to filter.

We pulled into our camp about 5 and set up. We had some good dinner and started a fire for the trash.
