Day 29: Baden Powell and Slightly Beyond

Date: May 8, 2017
Miles: 369.3 – 379.5

The owner of the Inn made us all a lovely breakfast of eggs, fruit, cereal and toasted bagels this morning, and after a second breakfast of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream, Allen and I got a ride in to town.  I ran a couple errands, got a big sandwich and then we hitched a ride back to the trail.  Since it was already well into the afternoon, we only had enough time to summit Baden Powell (in the sun!  Yay!) and set up camp a few miles up the trail.  It was my first night sleeping on snow and I was surprised to feel the cold seeping up through my inflated sleeping pad, but the view of the sunset on the icy landscape was so quiet and peaceful that I didn’t mind.
