PCT mile 1965
Coming into camp late last night, I didn't want to set up my tent and the weather was nice, so I decided to cowboy camp. I had one of my best nights sleep, I slept through the entire night without waking up.
14 miles into my day I took a nice long break at Dumbbell lake. About 3/4 of a mile from Dumbbell I found Sanford and Hornsby taking a break, I told them about the lake coming up and my plan to take a long break there, I continued on to find a nice swimming spot on the lake, and was joined by Sanford and Hornsby. We easily took about a two hour break, swimming and just laying around in the sun. By 3:30 we decided we should start thinking about packing up and hitting the trail since we still had a little over 11 miles to go to camp.
Hiking into camp the sky had turned gray, I couldn't tell if it was smoke from a fire or actually overcast with a threat of rain. In discussion at camp Buffalo thought it was a front blowing in, so needless to say, none of us cowboy camped tonight and we all set up our tents, just in case it did decide to rain.
