Slept in, ate breakfast down the street, and ended up staying with Footloose at the hostel until 1:30 in the afternoon lounging a bit, helping the owners put in some air conditioning units, and trying to gather motivation for the upcoming 2nd half of the trip. Left in the afternoon heat after a nice pint of Ben and Jerry’s–our payment for helping out–and headed out for a short day. Stopped at the Weverton Cliffs overlook to wait for Footloose, but found out from another hiker that he had turned back to the hostel because he’d gotten sick again–something he’s been fighting since yesterday morning. I hope he feels better soon and that we meet again up the trail–it’s been great hiking together off and on for awhile. A nice short day for a change.
