Morning at Twilight Lake

Snoqualmie Pass or bust

I am really glad I put the rain fly on last night. Around midnight, I wake up to this plop, plop, ploppity, plop on my tent. Fog set in; the humidity went to 100%; and a tree dripped on me the rest of the night. It woke up Buffalo Sly too but he was dry.

I just slept in and let the fog burn off; after all, I only had 10 miles to the pass. I have hiked most of this 10 miles several times over the years except from Twilight Lake to the cut off to Cold Creek. I was really happy to see that the blow downs had been cut out; that took a crew quite a while even with chain saws. Hiking this leg was like visiting an old friend: Mirror Lake, the cutoff to Tinkham Tarns and Silver Peak, Windy Pass, Olallie Meadow, Rock Creek, Lodge Lake and then down to the pass.

About 1 mile from the trail head, my friend Bill appeared even though he is hurting with a severely sprained ankle. That was nice to see him plus he was giving me a ride home. First, we had to stop at the Pancake House for what turned out to be pretty mediocre food. I would have thought that a Pancake House could make good pancakes; apparently not yet.
