My tent got frosted over inside and out but I got up early with Silverthorne in my sights. Chance texted me to say he was at a hotel right where the trail came into town, so I stopped by to say hi before breakfast. He told me to take a bus 15 miles down the trail and then walk back (more downhill that way). I left my pack at the hotel and headed out.
I heard from a bunch of people that it’s supposed to snow tonight, so I’m happy to end my day back in a town. The actual walk back to Silverthorne was great as it passed through two towns where I could get food! My parents called me while I walked too… Ahh civilization 🙂
It’s pouring rain at this elevation so that snow could be happening, if so tomorrow could be very umm… Interesting!
