Day 5: I Reek

Walked from Hogpen Gap to the Blue Mtn Shelter todayn about 11 miles.  During the beautiful hike I realized that my odor had gone way way past smelling, beyond stinking….I reek.  

Blue Mtn Shelter 

The water source this evening is a tiny trickle but I managed to get a couple of liters extra for a sponge bath.  Peppermint soap and a bandanna.  Also washed my shirt.   I do not claim to now smell good but I believe my gag radius has been significantly reduced.  Hard to tell, all the people I meet also stink.

On the sweeter smelling side, flowers are still blooming in the mountains.
