the most view I had all day

Fog Machine

Pissing rain all day
No views in the fog for me
Set up tent in rain


What a day. Over 5000 ft. of climbing with pissing rain most of the day. The fog machine called Washington is yet again showing her true self to this stinky hiker. I was starting to dry out in the afternoon but around 5 pm it really started to rain without avail.

I started my day camped under some trees which makes it hard to tell if it's raining because even once it has stopped raining, they continue to let loose big fat drops. I didn't know whether to hike out our stay in my tent. Finally I decided to emerge and was on trail by 815 am.

If the rain wasn't trying to get me then it was the brush covered trail. Once you push through the brush you're wet anyway.

As darkness fell, I squeezed into a campsite with several others. Yep, time to set up the tent in the rain. Any ideas on how to not get your tent wet? I'm still trying to figure it out. I threw it up as fast as I could. Threw the drenched fly over the top and hoped for the best. I had a little mopping up to do once I got inside but I had dry clothes and a dry sleeping bag to get into. Me and Bubby snuggled in and hoped the fly would keep the rain out.
