Most of the other sites at Mystic Camp have already been vacated by the time we wake-up. Evidently, we're still catching on sleep. Because of our late wake up, we do miss out on our neighbor's offer to boil us some water.
Last night we discovered that we're blowing way to fast through the 3oz (ca. 110g) butane canister we have for the 3 days to our resupply at Mowich Lake. Writing on the canister claims ~21 boils, but we've used more than half the canister making yesterday's lunch & dinner.
Time to be more careful with the flame size. And turning off the stove as soon as the water boils. We do make some tea for our breakfast as we pack up.
⛺ Mystic Camp
We start with a short climb to pretty Mystic Lake.
Shortly after Mystic Lake, we run into two backpackers on their way out to Sunrise who can spare another small gas canister. It has been used some but should tie us over to Mowich Lake with what we have in ours.
