2879.6 to 2899.7 for 20.1 miles


2600’ of net gain



I woke to a beautiful sunrise with the fog below the mountains. The first miles climbed some ridges and knolls that only improved the views. Then I descended to join the Badger Creek trail and got another thorough soaking from the thigh down from the wet vegetation. Once I was low enough, I was below the fog and there was no sun. At least the vegetation wasn’t as wet dow low.



I walked through a lot of burns and a lot of horse tracks. These trails mist get large amounts of horse traffic. There were several small ups and downs to keep it interesting, but it was cloudy all day so the views were limited.



As I neared Summit Campground at Marias Pass, a light rain started. The camp host let me pitch at her sight for free and brought me hot broccoli and rice to eat! My first trail magic!



Unfortunately, it is supposed to rain the next two days. I’ll hike into East Glacier tomorrow and get permits the following day so I’m hopeful the rain will move out by then.
