Today we spent our day relaxing, grocery shopping, eating and going to the local outfitter. Kathleen traded out her sleeping bag for a summer bag and Joe bought a new pair of boots as his old pair had a large rip in the front. We hiked out of Damascus later in the afternoon to try and avoid the rain headed our way. We got sprinkled on but the hard rain held off until we got to the shelter. We hiked a total of 9.7 miles making it to Saunders Shelter.
