Rather uneventful day. Left Whitewater Preserve around 4h30. At our first little coffee break a few miles in, Eric suddenly popped up. Hadn't seen him since he left for the Paradise Valley cheeseburger a few days ago. The three of us hiked on till about 13h and took a siesta till 17h. Afterwards, another steep 5.9 mile climb to camp at the last river intersection.
The highest mountain in the middle of this image is San Jacinto :)
