We get up for an early breakfast. It rained during the night, but stopped by morning. We worked our way back to the trail and began a series of up and down, up and down. The rain was our partner today. The Frog Toggs rain gear seems to be working just fine. Mine has turned into chaps. We are impressed with their light weight, breathability and they are mostly waterproof. Wouldn't want to do much off trail hiking with them. Don was cold today, as long as I was moving I was able to stay warm. When we did take breaks, they were short. A marked campsite on the map led us to Spade Creek. A large tree provided us with some shelter to cook our meal in a somewhat dry manner. We were entertained during dinner by a small brown bird with behavior like a Thrasher. Early to bed with a little reading. We are still enjoying reading out loud to each other. Some nights we read quite a bit, other nights it can be difficult to read more than a page or two.
