September 3, 2013

September 3, 2013
Cow Creek to just above Hunt Lake
34 miles

After yesterday's big ups and downs, today seemed easy by comparison. There were a few ups and downs but it seemed to mostly fluctuate between 11,000' and 12,000', or thereabouts.

Not much eventful happened today. I was planning on doing about 40 miles today to make it a little easier to get to Monarch Pass store to pick up my resupply box when they open at 8am, but per usual a thunder shower passed through at just the wrong time. The last 7.4 miles before the pass are on the divide and I made it to 9 miles out by 6pm when the clouds decided to start rumbling with an accompanying shower of rain and hail as well. So I'm 8 miles short of the pass and will try to get going by 5:30am in an attempt to get to the store around the time they open.

I'm getting to a point (almost 2,000 miles in) where I am getting kind of antsy to get done. It might have something to do with the fact that the NOBOs are all finishing around this time, or the fact that I have spent so much time solo, or maybe just the shortening daylight hours. Whatever it is I'm feeling some sort of urgency.
