800 miles!

written Jun 14, 2017 @ 01:41 AM after hiking 9.69 miles

Since The Chairman wasn't leaving until later, Peanut and I slept in -- we didn't get started until 5:00am! Up first, not twenty feet from where we slept, was a ford between two lakes. Oh well, a mild inconvenience and then we were on our way!

Sun's up! Time to walk!

Shortly, we came to our next creek. Thankfully, this one had partial ice bridges on it, but nothing complete. However, it was a narrow gap, so Peanut jumped across, then I threw him our things, and followed. I have videos that I'll post ... in the future. If I remember.

Then we crossed a sketchy, swaying suspension bridge that was clearly marked "one person at a time", and for good reason.

Wobble wobble wobble

Then the highlight of the day:

Neat! 800 miles!

Then another highlight: an absolutely raging creek that was totally awesome.

Thankfully we didn't need to ford this one

Now that we're set up for the unthinkable tomorrow (two passes in one day!) I can take a break.

Good life.
