The mosquitoes seem to be coming out. We crossed evolution creek. In high snow years this can be a difficult crossing. It was easy at this time. We decided to go to Blayney Hot Springs. There were about 3 hot spring pools in the middle of a meadow. Since it resembled a bath, I was in! It was a little mucky and had a lot of dead mosquitoes. But it felt good. We rinsed off by jumping in a cold pond and hiked about a mile to set up for the evening. I was feeling homesick this night. When I hike, I always am thinking of family and friends. I always wonder and dream about what each person is doing at that time. I wonder if we are walking around at the same time, chances are that we are! I just had been particularly nostalgic this day and watched the sunset with tears in my eyes…Alan talked me through it, just know we both miss you all. I wish you all were with us to see all what we have been seeing.
