PCT Thru Hike, PCT Washington / 03.08.2018

At mile 2300.9. Hiked 21.4 miles today.  Today was a short day into White Pass where I resupplied with a package sent to Kracker Barrell.

In fact, it was officially reported at 11 AM and I was hiking through that area around noon.  After spending most of the day at Kracker Barrel, I started hiking again at 6:20 pm and hiked into the dark some time after 9 pm. The area full of scum ponds and  was infested...

I’m staying in Trout Lake a 2nd night making today a zero miles hiked day. I’m lucky to have gotten a private room at the grocery so I’m living in style in downtown Trout Lake. An extra bonus is that there is a bathtub where I soaked in a warm bath of Epsom salts.  Cache 22 and I used the bathrobes provided while all our clothes were in the washer. Nobody seemed to notice. I received new Altra Olympus shoes in Trout Lake. Here are the Altras that went to...
