The sweet Mrs. Jean Reed was kind enough to pick up 2 hitchhikers. She gladly drove us to the Devils slide Trailhead. Mrs. Reed was originally from Michigan and told us of her 29 cross- country travels.
We hiked on. Over the day we had an elevation gain if 3400 feet. We night hiked with our head lamps to be in a more ideal location. We set up camp late and drifted off to sleep : )
