very coldIcy, slippery rocks
January 7, 1981 -- Day 271

Along the Taum Salk Trail, I slipped and fell into the stream on a morning when the temperature was below 32 degrees.....brrrrr to say the least. The rock in the middle of the stream was the "culprit".

About 10 people gathered in one dome tent for an evening of a dice game called "zilch"---it was bitterly cold outside, but toasty inside the tent. The worst part of the evening was leaving that crowded, warm tent and settling in for the night in a sleeping bag.
