I’m going to keep this post brief just to catch up after almost two days of no cell coverage. I walked 22 miles and have two things to report:
1. It rained and rained and rained.
2. My rain gear worked as advertised.
My Arc’teryx rain jacket is fantastic and is probably my most important piece of clothing, my Patagonia rain pants are lightweight and get used everyday either for warmth or protection from wind and rain, and my Smartwool socks keep my feet warm and blister free even when they are soaked all day long.
When it’s raining hard all day you spend a lot of time looking down at the trail. Check out this photo of the salamander I saw on the trail. I wonder what evolutionary purpose the bright orange color serves?
