My favorite lake - Marie Lake

Marie Lake - one of my favorite places

Man, did I wish I had a fishing pole this morning when I went down to the lake to get water, but I didn't so.. time to finish off the marathon up to Selden Pass. The pass is not much per se, but the view down to Marie Lake is spectacular. It is one of those views that just make you feel good. In Washington, Wright Mt and Longs Pass fit that bill too.

But I had miles to go before I sleep. Down past the lake, meadows, streams - down a long ways. The next pass for the day was really Bear Ridge and it was a bear. My set ups are all screwed up since I have been hitting the hard up hill sections at the end of the day when it is hot and humid and hot and humid. The guide book says there are 53 switchbacks down the north side of Bear Ridge but I counted 58. As I told one couple from Shelton, what else do I have to do but count them. I could let silly song lyrics get stuck in my brain but that is only good for a few minutes and then it turns to torture.

The day ended with a short detour of a mile or so down to the "ferry" landing to VVR. It is not much of a ferry.
