PCT Thru Hike, PCT Washington / 27.07.2018

At mile 2188.5. Hiked 22.4 miles today. My leg felt better, but as a precaution I decided n’ont to push it too hard and to take more breaks. It was also very hot again in the middle of the day so I took a 3 plus hour break at lunch at Wind River with 2 river swims. When the sun dipped behind the trees I began a long climb until I reached a camping spot  sometime between 8 and 9 pm. There has been a variety of ferns. I liked...

At mile 2166.2. Hiked 19.5 miles today.  I counted 17 PCT’r tents at Cascade Locks Marine Park Camp. Others stayed at the hotels. This is the I’ve seen in town since Warner Springs around mile 100.

With a late start, the hot day seemed even hotter. The trail passed through beautiful fern growth that at least gave the...

I bought grocery resupply, showered, and I washed clothes. Here is the view of the Locks from my camp. Best view in town! I had one...

PCT Oregon, PCT Thru Hike / 23.07.2018

At mile 2144.8. Hiked 26.4 miles today. At some point today I decided to hike all of the way into Cascade Locks, but with 1.8 miles to go I  came across a good tent site next to a creek and decided it would be less hectic to stay there than to enter town late and try to get to the campground. I had considered motels, but the Best Western is $250 per night and other motels are not much better than camping. If a motel doesn’t offer a bathtub...
