At eight a.m. this morning, I hit the two and a half thousand mile mark – an inconceivable distance when I started this hike, back in May. By dusk I’d logged 29.3 for the day. Just 138 miles to go…

Today rocked all around. I hiked into the Glacier Peak Wilderness and was taken a bit by surprise when I popped out of the trees in late morning into an alpine wonderland. Flowers blooming everywhere, snow decking the slopes, three Golden Eagles soaring overhead, and what weather! Record high temperatures have been set all over Washington this week. I hiked in a T-shirt all day and dripped sweat on every climb. Still feels like summer out here.
