Day 94 – Beating the Heat

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 this type because it’s leaf pattern is so different than other ferns.

Here is the trail. It dropped to low elevation and passed through some private land and over a couple of rivers bef a big climb at the end of the day.

With this view of Mt Hood I could see the outlines of the Columbia River gorge.
