3 fingered jack and Cherub in her grape crush outfit

Drop That Jaw

Three fingered jack climb
Lots of weekend warriors
Milky glacial stream


A later start than expected but made quick miles up and around three fingered jack. Nice to have a chance to talk with Cherub. As we rolled into rock pile lake we realized we were still on target to make our 28 miles. So, after a short break we were pounding our feet down the trail again. We crushed the last 13 miles like a grape.

As I made the final descent of the day, a weekend warrior was curious what I was doing and where I'd started. I said I was hiking the pct. He was like, well yeah, implying that he too was also standing on the pct. So I said I started at santiam pass and was headed for milk creek for a 28 mile day. His jaw kinda dropped and he didn't have any more to say. Thanks for the compliment!

Camped here tonight with just Kpax. All the others, One Point, Quatro Vio, Cherub and perhaps others are back 5 miles at Shale Lake.
