Continued on to MM1391, Cache 22, an unmaintained cache. I had been looking forward to arriving because it was about the halfway point and there were chairs to sit on in the shade. Upon arrival there was no shade but I tried to enjoy the chairs for a sit. The one I chose collapsed and cut my finger seriously. There was a campsite nearby and I’d done 14 miles so decided to camp here. I setup the tent then did some first aide on my finger. It’s the left hand middle finger but it is the hand I use to lift my bag onto my back. I’ll see tomorrow if it means stopping the hike for a while. Otherwise today was a nice walk, hot and uphill so I stopped to rest several times.
I met the following hikers today: Homestretch (a girl through hiker), Strata and Oats (through hikers), and Peabody ( a through hiker)
