Mile 1741.2 to 1763.3 for 22.1 miles. Camp is at an elevation of 5356 by the South Brown Mountain Shelter. Elevation gain of 3305 and loss of 2621. We were hiking at 6:45 and into camp at 6:20. It was a very chilly morning and we had another day of limited water sources. After 8 miles we came to the very small Grizzly Creek, then in another 4 miles got to a small trickle coming from a pvc pipe 345 feet off trail. Our next water was at camp and would be the last water until Fish Lake, 10 miles further. We are both tired and disheartened by the water challenges we are once again facing. We have several more long dry stretches in the near term. We hiked through lots of forest; some previously logged but not clear cut. After entering the Rogue River National Forest we had some of the best huckleberries. Then about 1.5 miles before camp we received trail magic. Jerry enjoyed two Coke’s and this reinvigorated him. This was a particularly hard day for him up to this point. It has been hard on both of us having the past two days first, second and third focus be about water sources. Smokey skies were worse this morning and burning my eyes. Wearing sunglasses helped. The trail was so nice and soft under our feet. We were the first of about a dozen other tents to arrive at our destination for the night.
