Woke up early & headed for McCargoe Cove
in hopes of getting a shelter. Left at 7:20 AM and went past Lake
Ritchie and Chickenbone in nice weather. Got to McCargoe around
12:30, but there were no shelters left. We did get a nice individual
tent site. The only bad thing about it is that it's up a HUGE hill.
Went down to the lake and took a quick dip (a little chilly!) and
washed some clothes. Hopefully the weather will hold out the rest
of the night so everything has a chance to dry. We're feeling pretty
sore, but it's nice the get an early start and then have time to
Oh, and saw a wolf track today down in the swamp
between Ritchie and Chickenbone. There was a lot of scat too -
seemed pretty fresh.
One thing I haven't mentioned here - Andy and
I are actually on our honeymoon. Our wedding was wonderful. I
know it's the stereotype to say that it's the happiest day of your
life, but it really was. Everything turned out perfect, and we
were sad to see it all end...
