Day 69 – passes, long long day.

July 1st
Miles:  956.6 to 976.1

woke up with a low phone battery thought I was charging and was not.

Woke early and hiked on to lake Miller which is an achingly beautiful lake. We had to stop for a while and rest and relax.

Later we passed into some valleys where the mosquitoes were so bad we nearly ran. One near Benson lake we had to cross a log over deep water, this is already nerve wracking but while being swarmed by mosquitoes it is a nightmare.

We did two smaller passes.

Bugs was up ahead and we took too long at lunch so we got to the top of the second pass as night fell and had to pitch camp near a lake.

We will catch up to him in the morning.
