Day 36: Tent City

Publish date: May 26, 2019

It’s Saturday night. The hikers are all back at tent city, still drying out from the a line of parade goers water guns. Right now, it’s a full moon, the paths are torchlit, and tents glowing neon lights surround us. The steady rhythm of the drum circle rings throughout camp, while the sporadic howling and mini guitars fill the space. There’s no litter, no fights, no sexual harassment. We recognize many hikers, and we’re excited to compare trail experiences. Everyone is either wearing dirty athletic clothing or thrift store costumes.
