Pacific Crest Trail Map

250 miles to go

Got out of Cascade Locks late in the afternoon and got ten miles in before camping. Got started early the next day and at the 20 mile mark hit the next fire closure, 20 miles before I thought I would but they had extended it south. It took four hitches to get to trout lake but I finally did and then stayed at a local monastery. The grounds were beautiful there. I had breakfast there the next morning then they gave us a ride back to the trailhead. I got in twenty miles that day. The next couple days of hiking started to get much better as I was starting to go through mountains again with great views. I hiked through the goat rocks area which was stunning. It very much reminded me of being in the sierras again.





I made it to white pass and had to go around our last (hopefully) fire closure. I got a couple of hitches into snoqualmie pass where I was going to stay for the night when I ran into 8 bottle, fire princess, screagle , and Tinkerbell. That was the group I hiked through the sierras with. I haven't seen them for about 1200 miles. I really didn't think I would ever see them again. I'm really looking forward to finishing up the trip with them. It's a fun group. The forecast for the next week is 70's and sunny. Should be great hiking weather. With just 2 weeks to go the views should be good and I'll be hiking with friends again. It should be fun.
