Things are starting to look up for Kevin's crew. The four students remaining in Kevin's group head along the eastern portion of the backpacking loop to catch up with the other students. They're a solid group, even though the weather continues to be cold and wet most of the time. The packs are packed better and the students seem to be more comfortable being on the trail.
