Almost done. Only 60 miles to go. Although after 2600 miles having to do a paltry 60 might seem easy, but each mile in the Northern Cascades requires more energy and my physical stamina is also waning.
Labor Day and the Post Office is closed. I can’t get my resupply until Tuesday at 10 AM. Then I can’t get on trail until the bus leaves at 11:15 AM and arrives at the trail at 12:15 PM. This means a short hiking day and I’m trying my best to get to Katie at the trail’s northern terminus on 9/6 at 3:30 PM. Wish me luck and happy feet!
This log looks short because of the foreshortening. But it was about 60-100 feet long and as wide as a sidewalk. They built a walk up to it with river rocks. The roots were probably manicured to form a “V” to climb through. Although I shuffled across the log due to my limited balance, it was a fun obstacle to surmount.
At Steven’s Pass I hitched 16-miles to the Dinsmore’s Hiker Haven. As each hiker passes through their home the hiker’s picture is taken and posted. Here is mine which was taken by Andrea as I was talking to Jerry. We were chatting about what to do about the upcoming Labor Day holiday and the closure of the post office in Stehekin.
