My first two days on the trail have been very wet. I am enjoying it none the less. We had some great musicians at the shelter last night playing a ukulele, a violin, and singing. It was great! We slept in the shelter to keep our tents dry, and had no problems. Funny how comfortable you can be sleeping side by side with a stranger. Haha. We hiked all day today with Allen from Arizona. He's a retired air traffic controller, and has a nice easy going disposition. He keeps telling us to "stop scaring him" when we say something about mice, bugs etc. Hahaha. We are camping for the 2nd night with "voltron". Planning to sleep in the shelter tonight again to stay out of the storm. Hopefully the critters will stay away.
Here is a cute salamander we found today. His name is firecracker.
