Washington passes

written Sep 6, 2017 @ 03:34 AM after hiking 28.28 miles

Today was another typical Washington day: lots of climbs, lots of descents, over and over and over. However, I'm almost done with the big climbs, though!

I will not be crossing this broken bridge

Thankfully, I reached Rainy Pass today, the last paved road that the PCT crosses. There was a notice there letting us know that the Diamond Creek fire was not currently closing the PCT, so I pushed on.

Phew.

So much smoke though

Like, tons of it.

It made for some pretty cool other-worldly scenes though

Fifty miles left!
