FLT Day 23: Shindago leanto, 10 miles

I didn't sleep very well last night, and I'm not sure why. Up all night tossing and turning. When I finally woke up I seemed fine, but after I got going it felt like I was moving in slow motion. My feet were raw after the longer day yesterday in the snow. My muscles ached, especially my Achilles tendon. All in all, not a good start to the day.

The major saving grace for the day was the temperature. It was mostly sunny all day, and got up to at least 50. At one point I was hiking in a tshirt and still getting hot. I hope the snow dies a painful death, but also a very quick one. I think the next couple of days are supposed to be similar temperature, so I can only hope.

The leanto tonight is quite nice. It's located on a slight rise, with a river curving around it on three sides. There is a nice waterfall in the river that I will get to listen to all night long. It's even in the middle of a pine forest. The pines made everything a bit colder, but still a nice place for the night.
