Day 62

Sept 16
Miles:  19
PCT:  2494.3 – 2513.3
Total Miles:  785.2
Elevation gain:  5201

I go up a little late due to the fact that I was with other campers and I didn’t want to disturb them, but I still did.  I seem to get up much earlier than everyone else.  I don’t see how these people can get so many miles in getting up so late.  I got on the trail around 7:30 am. 

Today was very difficult as my legs were worn out from yesterday’s difficult climbs and fast pace.  Today’s climbs were not as bad but seemed difficult.  The actual elevation gain was more than yesterday.  I had to rest a lot and so I didn’t get in many miles again.

The views were unbelievably beautiful today.  As great as any day so far.  Washington is truly amazing.

My feet were sore by the end of the day, but they held up fairly well all day.  Still hurts like hell but not torture.

I love these interlacing canyon shots.  There’s lots of them in WA.
