I woke up early, listening to anticipatory rustling all around me. Everyone excited to get moving. Took my time putting my things together, giving the fast hikers a chance to get out ahead. Caught up with a few at Boulder Oaks, our next water stop, 6 miles up. There were trepidatious murmerings about continuing due to mid day heat. Greenhorn, the German, and I decided to go for it. I lost sight of him almost immediately, and slowly continued to Cibbet's Flat, 14 miles from Lake Morena.
