We hiked into Kings Canyon National Park, up the San Joaquin River. It’s big, loud, and beautiful. Then we made our way up to Evolution Valley, where we took a swim in a cascading pool with a bedrock bottom. We set up camp at an elevated perch above a meandering stretch of the evolution creek. Today we logged our least amount of mileage - I blame it on the absence of homemade jerky. What is this Oberto crap?

Day 8: (mile 108 – mile 120.5)
At our halfway mark I can now start counting down in instead of counting up. The entire gauging process has involved increments of increments. For example, ‘in 2 miles you will have gone 1/3 of the day’s distance, and by that point you will have been ¼ of the entire distance.’
