Afternoon was a little easier, more level terrain. We passed a cooler of trail magic... empty! Denied! That hurts.
Across the road, the trail entered a cow pasture for a while before entering back onto the woods.
It did stop raining but I wasn't thrilled about setting upstate tent in the mud, so I opted for the shelter with Sub while Hawkeye and Raid Runner continued ahead. I was dry, but had to contend with shelter snores! Not a lot of sleep.
