Day 3. 9/18/21. Miles 968 to 982. Smegburg to Kerrick Canyon creek and Stublefield Canyon. 14 miles

Smoke continued to be visible, but was mostly off in the distance and did not seem to affect us.

Smegburg lake

Very nice trails here

Another sunrise. I generally started hiking 30 minutes before Craig so he could relax. Craig had no trouble catching me.

When clear, the views were awesome!

Day 3 ended at Kerrick Creek and Stubblefield Canyon at mile 982. We had to forego a brief side trip to the “Benson Riviera” as the 14 mile day and tough climbs had us tired. It’s suppose to be an epic sand beach. We will return!
