Sunset, walking north to big flat after being sqeezed off the beach by the high tide. I like long walks on the beach, sunsets, and candle lit dinners.

I'm up early to beat the tide on my way out of big flat. Clark saw a mountain lion at the tree line, and I saw a figure on the trail the day before. In the morning there were tracks on the beach.

I finished my trip @ 34 miles, 10 hours of actual hiking.

Clark should be here soon, I'm running out of daylight and been out of food.
