Well, we tried. Susan has been feeling poorly for a couple days, and when we tried to hike out today it didn't go so well. After a mile we had to turn around. We spent an hour this afternoon with the park service EMT who checked her over thoroughly and didn't feel it was an emergency requiring evacuation to a hospital down lake. The recommendation is rest for a day or two and try again. Thankfully the incredible staff at the lodge managed to squeeze us in a room somehow. There are far worse places to be stuck for a couple days.
There is no doubt we are worn down to the point of near exhaustion. With only 5 days of hiking left to finish the trail, hopefully a day or two off will do the trick.
