Highlight: Despite being more than two months into the hike, this is the first time I remember seeing any significant cloud cover. It did make the scenery (and photographs) more interesting.
Biggest challenge: Finishing the climb out of Belden. I still had 2300 feet of elevation to gain above yesterday’s climb. (Dishonorable mention: The instant coffee we bought at the store in Belden was so bad that I chose to go without my morning coffee for a few days. *gasp*)
