Day 121 8/12
Mile mark 2230.0-2257.9
Steamboat Lake to Lava Springs

IMG_3235The day started out quite nice. IMG_3236

Then the rain, lighting, and hail started. Above a stream on the left and the trail(now a stream) on the right. In some places the accumulated hail was a few inches thick. IMG_3237

Even the little creeks were nearly overflowing. IMG_3283

The bigger creeks were even scarier to cross. The water in this creek was freezing and filled our shoes with sand. As we were crossing there was a sound like thunder, which was actually large rocks further upstream being carried downstream. This was the second coldest I’d been on trail and one of the worst days.
