...or maybe a funny gesture!

I noticed she blew by Guitar Lake. I wonder if it's tempting to go for the Portal. Sometimes at the end of a trip, I'm waxing nostalgic and drag my feet a little on the way out...sometimes I'm just want to get back to my soft, warm bed and a nice hot shower. She'll let us know soon.

Maybe she's got "health food" :wink: stashed at the portal (a la our last outing to Aspen Grove) and doesn't care about the Portal Store. I kind of like the vibe at the Portal Store, but who knows. Maybe she needs to work some demonic cougar scratches out of her legs. :lol:

Ellen has been very consistent and is right on schedule to finish up tomorrow with what may be her highest-mileage day (by a bit). The answer to "are we almost there" on the JMT is almost always "no," But she is close to changing that. 8)

What a journey that must have been Ellen, looking forward to hearing all about it, the next time I see you on the trail, maybe over a cold beer!
