Washington: ups and downs

written Aug 27, 2017 @ 03:44 AM after hiking 30.06 miles

I always underestimate how much elevation gain Washington has. I'm always walking up a mountain or down some face. There doesn't seem to be five miles of flat ground in this whole state.

So anyway, at the end of today (14,000+ feet of elevation change), I'm tired. So very tired.

Just look at this sunrise though!

And this smoke...

But there are beautiful forests, too.

Oh, and at camp tonight, there were three southbound hikers, and we got to talking, as one does. It turns out that he knew about me from Peanut's blog! I never saw that coming.
