What a rat race. Up in the morning to catch the 8:15 shuttle to drop us off at the bakery 2 miles up the river for breakfast. Massive pecan cinnamon sticky bun, cappuccino, and an oatmeal raisin cookie for the long walk back to town. Stopped at the organic garden, and had a goat milk lassi, delicious. Continued sauntering down the road past log cabins, some newer places, and various other objects of interest. After a nap, off to the park service headquarters to get a permit for our first nights' camp, post office to mail off a few ounces to lighten our packs, including our parkas which have been superfluous so far, to the store for minor provisions and a beer, sit on the porch and watch hikers limp in, gosh, we need a vacation!
Said it was 103 here today, but expect much improved conditions the coming week, except for possible showers sat-sun. Hey, this is the Cascades after all.
Prime rib for dinner tonight, homemade Turkish espresso ice cream for desert, and a walk on the boat pier and out to the point to help the digestion.
Back to work tomorrow, 8:15 shuttle to High Bridge, with a quick stop at the bakery for our prepared sandwiches, then onto the trail for 11 miles. 13 miles the next day, then 16, 18, 19, and 15 into Manning Park and Canada. Don't expect any cell connection until Canada, will update when we can. With what little news we chose to read, will be looking for a place in Canada. ...C&RR

You're never lost. You're just not on the trail you expected to be on.
