At Derrick Knob Shelter after a long day of hiking. Did 10 miles but felt good. The baby grasshoppers are like popcorn popping when you walk by. They start jumping around when you walk by. Very windy tonight, going to be cold. Beautiful views from the top of the mountains today. Sometimes, after a long climb, when you get to the top; it takes your breath away. My chest fills up and I’m awed by the beauty. Today I made myself stop and eat every hour, trying to keep my energy up. It helped, but I feel constantly hungry. Will keep working on it.
