Day 2 stats as listed on the hut-to-hut site:
29 miles, 3722′ ascent, 4450′ descent, max. elevation 11,420′
The weather gods were on our side today, although it didn’t seem like it at first. We awoke to clouds and a very cold hut and there was fresh snow down low on the mountains around us. We were rained on just after we left the hut and it stayed chilly for a while.
Glenn made us some nachos when we arrived. JoJo (not his real name) made Mac ‘n Cheese with spam for dinner (don’t judge- you use what you have available up there – and it was good!) and peas, and Cresen made a peach and pear cobbler on top of the wood stove.
Unfortunately, there were tons of mosquitoes out, so we spent most of our time there INSIDE the hut. Another good reason to choose those you do this with wisely!
Day 3 photos and notes to be published soon!
