Ya can’t just go walking around thirsty. -Rockin’
Bridge of the Gods to mile 2154
Everything when like clockwork today. Even the predicted temp in Cascade Locks of 100 degrees was spot on. Here is the scoop:
-drive from Tehachapi to Burbank
-fly Alaska Airlines to Portland
-Blue Sky shuttle to Country Market in Cascade Locks, buy fuel, more bags of chips, salami, chocolate, and cheese.
-walk over the Bridge of the Gods in 100 degree heat, very spectacular
I was not even on trail 4 miles until I had taken my first dip in Gillette Lake and busted out the umbrella. Hiking in the high 90’s is not my style.
After a morning and early afternoon of transportation, we planned 4 miles. Well that didn’t happen. Extra time, heat, Water sources, and actual places you could camp dictated almost 10 miles.
The forest is green, lush, and thick. Oh Washington.
