|Mist kept day 2 cool|
Woke up to a misty morning and wet tent. Most of my aches from the day before had faded away. I wasn't good as new but I didn't feel broken anymore. I packed up and was on trail at 7:15. Right away my pack went back to being painful. I tried packing it different, and that might have helped some, but it was still uncomfortable all day long.
The mist was thick. Early I thought about putting my pack cover on, but I didn't want to stop so soon. I was also pretty sure the mist would clear as I climbed. It didn't lift, and I actually really liked being socked in-it was nice change from yesterday's hot sun. The mist stuck around until 2:30 and than that hot sun was back, but it started to cool down around 5:30.
The weather was a nice change from yesterday, but sadly my feet were still in rough shape. I have a few blisters now. The ones I drained refilled and ended up even larger. My feet feel raw to the touch, even if they don't look that bad. One blister burst while I was walking-that was a gross feeling, but now it doesn't hurt.
I ended up hiking a few miles past where I had planned. I was going to stay on top of the ridge, but it was such pleasant walking through a pine grove that I kept going. I stopped for a break when I thought I had a half mile left, I got up, put my pack on, took a step, and saw I was there.
It's a cold night tonight, and rain is suspected tomorrow night. I'm wondering if that will mean snow for me.
