Today was a long day qith nice hot weather and i walked almost all day. I leapfrogged with two other older hikers. One from the uk and one from the states. The trail was following creeks and i was hunted by mosquitoes and flies. There is one kind of flie that looks like a wesp, but is not. The trail went through pine forest and burned forest. It was easy to follow and there have been even 3 cdt signs. Though not in the places where you need them. Compared to the pct or the at there is no real cdt since it is so scarcely marked. You kust take a route south. I ate my dinner before camp since it is bear country. In camp i juat did a fire and went to sleep.
