bakery time

4 Hour Warm

First shuttle out left at 8 am so I had to be up early. Joined a group hiking out to rainy pass. Toots Magoots, Tears For Beers, Cuddles, Fun Size, Delightful, Lighthouse and Atlas. But first, another stop at the bakery.

In the driving rain we all headed out like a train of ants. Heads down, moving the feet as fast as they would go, dodging the water-filled trail, fording rivers, shivering, hoping for a steep uphill in order to get warm, log river crossings, tears, hoping for a quick ride into town, wondering if we were going to make it, wondering of we were going to die, trail magic that I hardly recall, hitch to Winthrop with Tears For Beers, warm shower, still shivering, wrapped up in blankets. Finally, after 7 pm warmth and calmness found us.

Went to Old School Brewery. 2 fresh hop ipas, burger, fries and still hungry. No worries, imperial ipa to go. Lively group we are, asleep by 10 pm. Exhausted from the day.
