our friend Marmie surrounded by vibrant red bushes

fall colors

Today was a fantastic last "full" day of hiking. Tomorrow we only have 20 miles to the finish line. We started walking this morning in golden light and proceeded up a steep hillside of fluorescent orange and red bushes topped by glowing golden larches (sp?). The beauty of the colors kept us in a near dream state the entire day. We were literally mesmerized by the colors, appearing sometimes as a rainbow of vegetation. It really felt like fall today with all the colors, but the temperatures soared to the mid 80's, and at some points we felt like we were back in the desert. This evening on our way to camp a brave marmot made our acquaintance and he literally made himself taller to check us out, making eye contact, and looking us up and down. I will miss these dear friends on the trail who keep us company. Between the chipmunks, chickarees, ravens, and jays we are never alone in solitude for long. Friends abound. Xox, colors
