6/3: Cornelius Creek

Hello all,

Since Breeze got to blog all last week while I was away for the wedding, you get a double dose of Wendy!

Today was a good but very tough first day for Zip (previously called Holden in another life.) We started the morning quickly with a 1000 foot climb followed closely by a 2000 foot climb! 3k is a serious day for newbie legs and he handled it like a champ! We finished our 12 miles by 5pm.

When we got to the shelter it was already quite busy. Eager to get some privacy, I wandered off and managed to find us a pretty great campsite with a fire ring. We quickly got our shelters setup and built an awesome fire! Zip's shelter system worked out very well and we were glad that we stopped by Walmart to get some last minute comfort items.

Tomorrow is a new day!
