Mile 2310.8 to 2325.7 for 14.9 miles with an elevation increase of 3313 and decrease of 2368. Camp was at Sheep Lake at an elevation of 5755. Rain began in earnest during the night so we delayed leaving camp until 10:45 when the intensity decreased. We got into camp at 6:00. We were in a cloud most of the day and it rained on and off, mostly on all day. We were able to pack the body of our tent separately from the fly while the fly was still pitched since the poles go into the fly rather than the body. This made a huge difference when we got to camp as we pitched the fly, got under it and reattached the body which was dry. Much of the day was spent dodging standing water in the trail. Other than this the trail was great. We were fortunate to have lunch when it wasn’t raining. It was cold all day. When we got to Chinook Pass we escaped the rain by sitting in an outhouse and having tea which warmed us before heading to Sheep Lake. Of note: the past two days Jerry’s flatulence could knock a buzzard off a shit wagon from 20 paces. There were many huckleberries, but it was too cold and wet to enjoy them. However, the beauty of the rain on their leaves was remarkable. They sparkled like shiny diamonds. We saw a cow elk and her calf which was exciting. It started raining hard at camp and Jerry discovered his waterproof pack is not waterproof! Only saw one hiker who was SOBO today.
