Day 16: Last Day of the Hike
LAST DAY FOR THE HIKE! I don't if I should be celebrating or be upset. Well this morning I was celebrating because I couldn't wait to get into my cozy bed in YZR. It was FREEZING so Sujin and I (we shared a tent) ended up waking up at around 2:00 A.M. shivering even though we were wearing a bunch of layers. In the end we ended up sharing both our sleeping bags. I have to say, I really thank my Mom for telling me to bring an extra jacket or else I would have probably frozen to death which would not have been pleasant. According to Mr. T, it was -1.2º C at around 7:30 A.M. It was cold (dot. full stop. end of story). The worse part was when we had to put the tents away. Our fingers were freezing cold and we couldn't get the tent to go into the bag at first. Once again, IT.WAS.COLD. hehehhehehe but I have to say when else would we experience this? So it was like a once in a lifetime experience(?). But still it was nice.
When we were heading down to Xizhou, it was so much better as it was downhill and since the weather was better than the first day. But in the end, I got blisters on my foot and I had to rely on my hiking stick. THANK YOU HIKING STICK. I LOVE YOU. :P All I know for now is: NO MORE HEAVY BAGS FOR THE NEXT WEEK. YAY!
