Day 5: I Reek
Walked from Hogpen Gap to the Blue Mtn Shelter todayn about 11 miles. During the beautiful hike I realized that my odor had gone way way past smelling, beyond stinking….I reek.
The water source this evening is a tiny trickle but I managed to get a couple of liters extra for a sponge bath. Peppermint soap and a bandanna. Also washed my shirt. I do not claim to now smell good but I believe my gag radius has been significantly reduced. Hard to tell, all the people I meet also stink.
On the sweeter smelling side, flowers are still blooming in the mountains.
