Slept real well and could have slept longer than 6 am.But I had miles to do.Ran into about 25 people today, most going south from Stevens to snoqualmie pass. I asked all of them how the difficult river ford coming up was. They all said it was doable, swift but not deep.I tried to eat more today and got a double dose of electrolytes and it all seemed to help keep my energy (mojo!!) going all day.Did cathedral pass and deception pass, though deception pass wasnt much to look at ..the river ford was swift but below the knee even in early afternoon., I did leave my boots on just to play it safe, but it went without a hitch. 3 hikers were there when I was so I felt safer because of them. Got to the 20 mile mark just before 6 pm. Some trail maintenance workers are here so it's not lonely. Tomorrow is my last day, just 18 more miles!!Plan to look up hiker haven/ dinsmores and clean up a bit before the ride home wed. morning.Yeah, I'll have 74 more pct miles completed!!!That leaves about 500 more to go!!!
