Longest mile day yet! Started out rough. Concern about my Achilles tendon resurfaced after an hour of crunching through frozen slush. Meant my ankle was twisting and turning so everything flared up. An hour and an advil later I was OK but I’m trying to get trailing running shoes on my feet asap in case its due to pressure in my hiking boot heel. Embers folks are potentially bringing them tomorrow. We have officially hiked over 100 miles!!!! At the top of mt Albert there was a tower with 360 degree beautiful clear view. The climb up there was torture but it was worth the rock climbing. We did push ups on top of the tower which was pretty exhilarating. My papa would have been nervous over the height of it. Rolled into camp and after the cooking and cleaning I’m ready for a warmer night of sleep. Spring can’t come sooner. Got to wear shorts today. Yipee! Attaching a panoramic from lunch before the tower.
