03 Aug Day 101 – Mt Ranier
At mile 2325.7. Hiked 24.8 miles today.
I used the Thermocell during a morning break and at lunch. It kept the mosquitoes away so could take off the head net and relax without those pesky bloodsuckers bothering me. I’m happy with Thermocell.
I broke camp at Busch Lake and walked past a number of ponds while hiking through one of the worst mosquito infested areas I had seen. Mosquitoes were in a swarm around my head net.
This is Busch Lake where I camped.
I passed by Yellow Cedars that grow in this area.
I had to cross a stream by walking this log. It was easier than some other log crossings I had done on the PCT.
There were meadows with ponds and wet areas. Beautiful,but perfect for mosquitoes.

This is Anderson Lake where I took a quick swim then laid on my mat to dry out. Washington has been hot.
