Today we went on an 8.2 mile hike in the rain! It's was delightful, though my feet were pruney by the end. we both wore our packs. Though mine was loaded with 8 days of food and Eric's wasn't. Mine was about 30 lbs and Eric's was about 14 with food/water.
Eric is astonishingly good at spotting mushrooms! It was super fun to see so many varieties.
So my biggest take away is that wet feet get sensitive! After asking around on the internet I got the suggestion to soak them until they are pruny and then let them dry often until we leave, since his will "toughen them up"
I'm sore but feeling good! What a great way to spend the day. Can't wait for next time!
