White Pass

written Aug 24, 2017 @ 02:33 AM after hiking 25.51 miles

Awesome: another town! And it's only 25ish miles away! Now I just have to get there before they close. (You might be thinking "but Evan, how can a town close?!" Well, it's pretty easy when a town is just a gas station.)

The good news is that today is also probably one of the most-anticipated sections of the trail. So I'm just going to dive into pictures, so I can show you why I was a little disappointed.

It started off gloomy

And then got pretty spectacular with a view under the clouds

And then, well, that's enough of looking at things, I guess.

And then it cleared up! Awesome!

Until finally I was approaching the Knife Edge!

Well okay then.

Amazing views.

Thrilling.

Okay so I crossed the Knife Edge today, and it was totally covered in clouds. Honestly, it was pretty cool, but probably not as cool as on a clear day. You can ask Google for pictures of that.

I did get some pretty good views though, so it honestly wasn't all bad -- I just like being sarcastic from time to time.

Like this one.

Or this one, from later in the day.

Anyway, long story short: I got to White Pass before they closed, got my resupply and some food, and headed back to the trail to camp in the parking lot. All in all, a great day.
