Journal Entry:
I got a campsite (at Sanctuary, Mile 23) for the night and got the bus here. So far the only animals I've seen are moose. I was planning on going for a hike, but the weather turned me off to that. It's overcast and threatening rain, but hot a sticky as well. Actually the mosquitoes were more convincing. I don't think I've ever seen them so thick. The repellent helps a lot, but it's not perfect, and it's way to hot to hike in pants and a jacket. So I've had a pleasant afternoon reading.

It's finally started raining lightly, that should drive off the mosquitoes for a bit, and maybe bring the temp down.
