It was hot and record temperatures were predicted. So, after filtering enough water to last us our hike back to the trailhead I decided that I’d lie in the creek a while and get soaked before we started climbing the 600+ feet out of the wilderness.
Lanie decided that she’d do the same. It was quite refreshing, and in the heat we dried off very quickly.
