Day 5

Publish date: Apr 21, 2019

I’m starting to get to know some of other hikers. I might stay at a shelter with a person one night, then catch them the next day eating lunch on some peak, and so on until we’ve remembered each other’s names. Rob and I hiked with two others today, and we ended up at a crowded campsite with people starting a fire, playing ukulele, hanging a birthday banner, and playing with THREE dogs.

I might not see some of these people after tonight, and I might be with some of them for the next few weeks. Who knows? It’s like when little kids just pick up new friends on the playground just for the day.
