He trucked right along today and was at the shelter by 4 so he took the time to go take a dip in the nearby Pierce Pond. Says it was a warm day and that it was refreshing.
Ponytail even got to sit around by the campfire w/other hikers. Unusual for him to do that. They usually don’t’ have fires (1) because you’re not supposed to at most of the shelters (leave no trace) and (2) after hiking all day who wants to go gather wood and possibly catch poison ivy has he did before. So, this was a treat. People and fire all at the same time.
