Day two. It rained through most of the night and into the morning. It was supposed to warm up today, but that didn’t materialize. I wanted to get a few miles in and be in a good position to get back to the trailhead before noon the next day. My plan was to hike down to Long Creek via the Devi’s Den Trail and then cut back up to the Pilot Trail via either the Glades Trail or the Cedars Trail, do some exploring up ‘Twin Falls Creek’ and find a new place to camp. That would give me a seven or eight mile hike for the day.

However, it started raining while I was stopped for lunch in the Devil’s Den. I saw three people while I was eating lunch — standing because of the lack of a camp chare — which was another incentive to get off the popular Rock Spring Trail as quickly as possible. I decided to take the shorter route via the Glades Trail back to ‘Twin Falls Creek’. My exploring at ‘Twin Fall Creek’ didn’t uncover any nicer camping spots than I’ve already found, so I went back to the campsite I used on Friday night. Oh well, I tried to find somewhere else to stop.
