Passed a reflecting pond and the view was beautiful in the morning light. Some stretches of the trail are really strenuous, but to our surprise we find we are getting stronger every day.

The hotel was very accommodating and finally around 4:40, we caught a bus to Lavachey - a short 20 minute ride up the road ...
