It started raining about an hour before I got to the campground at Crabtree Meadows. I set up camp in the rain, waited in my little tent for a while hoping it would stop raining, then walked to the camp store to get some dinner. It had a very limited food selection, so I ended up eating raisin bran and trail mix for dinner. Late at night, after it finally stopped raining, I heard two owls hooting loudly at each other. Total for Wednesday: 68 miles, 9 hours, average speed 10.3 mph.
