Sunny and warm
Again the morning is clear, but today we have to start our exit because Ann and I are low on food. My dad has plenty, even with his abundant generosity in sharing all his goodies with us. He has reminded us that a trip like this is not a through hike, and we could have afforded many more luxuries. I resolve not to make the same mistake again. So, with a longing glance at Pronghorn Peak, we start back west again.
Today the sky stays clear. We relax and talk as we make our way back to Little Divide Lake and set up camp. The lake becomes a perfect mirror as the sun goes down.
