Grouse Ridge Day 2b - Sunshine and no Mosquitoes

We ended up enduring the long lasting sunshine until finally we began to get a cool breeze from the north including a passel of cumulus clouds that gave us intermittent relief from the punishing rays. Unfortunately I wasn't paying attention to the backs of my hands and they are feeling a bit burnt.
The shade finally made it to our location and we decided this spot is a fine place to spend the night. It's flat! So at least I won't be fighting gravity all night. I am liking the new tent a lot. It has more headroom than any lightweight tent I have ever had.

We were able to have dinner while it was still light which was quite a luxury compared to last night. We met a guy who is up here fishing and so far he's caught a hundred times more fish than we have. 

A hundred times zero is still zero, but he certainly has been working at it more than I have. I haven't some any. Eric has spent some time throwing bait in the water without any interested fish. 

I ended up taking a nap in the shade. It will be interesting to see if I am able to sleep tonight with all the rest I got today. I think it'll be much warmer than last night as we have dropped about five hundred feet in elevation and there is very little snow on the ground. Surprisingly, there aren't any mosquitoes. At least there aren't any biting ones. They'll probably show up in the next few days.
