Memories from June 8
I woke up late today which was very much in the spirit of the day. I spent the morning drying gear and enjoying the view. I only need about 9 miles to get set up for Pinchot Pass tomorrow. Here’s the view when I woke up. The Rae Lakes were a good place to take a nearo.
When I finally did hit the trail a little before noon, the walk down the valley was great.
The were a number of interesting stream crossings.
I passed mile 800.
Though there were two markers.
The day ended with a climb up a valley with a thundering river.
Today I ran across a bunch of people who I haven’t seen for over 600 miles. They’re all hiking in a big group of about 12 people. I camped with them and had the third campfire of my trip.
That’s right. S’mores roasting with an ice axe.
