But when I stopped at camp, I saw where I was, smiled a bit, and started to mellow out. The wisdom among thru hikers is not to dwell on bad days. Let them happen, move past them, and remember that tomorrow is a different day. Hopefully tomorrow goes a bit better.
As I sat eating food and getting ready for bed, I saw a pika eating a wildflower on a log. Damn, those things are cute. Can’t be that bad of a day after all.
