A Rare View

Got an early start and was on trail by 7 am. Great morning climb was rewarded with spectacular views in all directions. Snow-capped mountains stood tall in the bright morning sun. Spent some time up there just enjoying the precious view. Wouldn't have been able to see any of it if the fog and clouds were still hanging thick.

Time to push it as it was our plan for a big mile day. Had lunch sitting on the new Suiattle River bridge. The old bridge was washed out and this new bridge, way down stream, adds 5 miles to the pct. Time to really crush it. Still another 11 miles to go. Well, at 630 pm we called it a day, 3 miles short of our planned destination. Good decision as it is currently raining.

Had a funny moment with a squirrel this morning. He was so busy eating a fir cone that he didn't notice me walk up. After about 30 seconds I could see him sorta freeze. We stared at each other for a while and then I moved my leg. The squirrel freaked, dropped his cone and bulleted up the tree while shouting at me. Of course, the trail switch backed right above the tree and the squirrel kept sending out his warning call.
