It worked fantastic, not one drop of water got through and it RAINED buckets all night
The next day I was up early and away, it was wet but another nice trail to walk.
I am glad I didn't attempt to get to Bear Lake the day before. It was not so much the distance as it was a lot more up and down today. The ridges do give a good view though
A view of Bear Lake and Bean Lake behind. you can tell another storm in approaching
I past a couple of tents pitched here on the ridge above Bean Lake ( below) I wonder how they liked the storm last night being so exposed.
The rain moved in quickly and I just barely had time to get on my rain jacket
After the rain storm my camera was too wet for photos. There was a really lovely camping spot called Beaver River, with a nice double waterfall, but I pushed on. When I got to Fault Line Ridge campsite (below) and dried everything out, the camera started working again.
Nearing Penn St parking lot, the end of the last section, I was joined by a couple that I had camped with last night and they were kind enough to give me some extra moleskin and tape for my feet. After I got everything dried out, I took a look at how my feet were doing... The extra supplies I got will be needed.
Dried out and relaxing
dinner and some orange drink to help the brown water! (above)
Great view from laying in my tent as the sun sets ( below)
14 miles in 7.5 hours.
Up and over Round Mountain, Bear Lake, Bean Lake, finish at Fault Line Campsite.
Below are 2 videos from day 2. I had made a video describing the coming storm and just after the storm began
