Mist on Frozen Deep Lake meadow

Up in the Misty Mountains

Saw a pine marten--reddish brown fur with a black tipped tail--a rare sighting. Another slog of a day. A killer descent into Glacier Lake on granite rocks--slowed to 1 mile an hour. The walk north of Deception Pass was very pretty--many springs with beautiful vegetation, sun dappled. There was lightning activity--I saw the flashes on the wall of my tent that night.

Glacier Lake was gloomy--I flashed on the Lord of the Rings and wished I had that book to keep me company. I could imagine Gollum coming up out of the lake on a floating log.

An aggressive chipmunk rushed over to my pack as soon as I camped. I spread some seeds for it in appeasement for camping in it's living room.
