From Didier (written Sunday morning): Saturday on the trail was muscle and mud day. Not really a new massage program at Bella Sante, just another day in Vermud. A Saturday night storm kept its promise, and the trail became all muddy. Mud going up, mud going down, everywhere…as slippery as my decision path in front of a chocolate bar. This was the good opportunity to learn all the muscles we have in the legs, the back, the shoulders. Not the name, who cares, but how many of them there are and how they can all hurt at the same time, even if you just blink an eye. Matthieu and I made it to Peru Peak Shelter at about 5:00pm Saturday night, a distance of 8.1 miles. Sunday should be better. We should part from these very long woody sections and even see a lake.
