Anticipation of treats in town make the 7 miles go quickly. Once we’re there we almost feel overwhelmed by everything we need to do – resupply food, fuel, batteries as well some good eating, drinking, and swimming. Sid’s bagelry becomes our base of operations, from which we branch out to the grocery store where Melanie and Alyssa bring us our resupply bag.
Regular coffee consumption is requisite.
A picnic and swim in the lake follows, during which we consume most of a pound of hummus with carrots, pepper, celery, and crackers.
Smoothies for dessert.
We finish our rest day by making the five mile ascent of Cinder Cone peak where we make camp.
