Day 32... it was really cold this morning but we are at 9500 ft and our camp Hr by a patch of snow so its not too surprising. The weather has been in the 80's during the day and in the low 40's high 30's at night we cooked some oatmeal and a marmet stole some beef jerky in a bag while we weren't looking ...i tried yelling at it and chasing it but he just didn't care! We hiked 2 passes numerous steep snow fields and 5 of us did static peak but not me i was exhausted. we completed 13 miles in 7 hours. most of our miles were down hill but we still had our fair share of up as well. As we approached the end at the death canyon trail head our other 3 who had hiked out on day 2, were there waiting for us with cold beers and they had reserved hotel rooms for us in jackson hole :-) love my friends! An amazing Shower, and food at the the snake river brewery 4 pitchers and a ton of food in a private room made it feel like a family dinner. This trip made us a family.
