After the storm passed and the rain let up a bit, we packed up and went back to the shelter, where all of the hikers were up and at 'em. We made breakfast of coffee and oatmeal, then waited for the rain to stop. We waited and waited some more. Surprisingly this didn't bother me in the least. Sometimes it's nice to have a REASON to stay put.

|Happy as a clam|
|That's the same Marmot jacket I used to woo Emily with 10 years ago in Arizona|
|Sleepy eyes already?|

Onward. We had 10 miles to walk for the day, so the goal was 5 miles or more before breaking for lunch. Around 11:30 Parker fell asleep so we walked until she woke up, which was about 12:30 and ~5.5 miles.
|While P was sleeping we got a pic of this guy, to show her later. "Bumblebee wooly"|
|Happy for our waterproof Olympus camera, to get these kinds of shots|
|FYI don't use the flash in a rainstorm|
