I spent the day walking with Honeybuzz and we made good progress despite about ten miles of snow. My GPS once again proved extremely useful, and I fell five times on slippery traverses this morning, sliding into tree wells on three occasions. Otherwise, the trail generally followed long, dry, forested, gently undulating ridge tops, with occasional views of distant peaks, and, by the end of the day, we’d hiked 27.2 miles.

To reach Canada by September 15th, my original goal, I’d now have to average 25.8 miles per day, with no days off, for the rest of the summer. It’s possible, but we’ll just see how things go; I’d still be happy finishing before October 1st, after which northern Washington starts getting winter snowstorms. Anyway, that’s still 1,400 miles away…
