Just start walking -Stealthy
Mile 2339.31 to 2365 – 25.89 miles
It was a social day.
I cannot express how fun it is to see other hikers coming up the trail. You see, Stealthy (Bryn has fully taken on this name) is always about 1/4 mile ahead of me. By the time hikers come upon me, they know all kinds of info she has passed along. Today she even gave a south-bounder a trail name, Mantas because of how he was using his poles. She also talked to OCD, a physical therapist and got all kinds of tips for helping her knees and feet.
She is friendly and positive with others. I just smile.
Both our bodies are feeling better and we are settling into somewhat of a routine. We are sleeping like rocks and love all our food, especially our dinners.
The terrain today again followed ridges, but through old logging areas. The springs were clear, cold and running freely.
We decided to hike a bit more miles today and tomorrow to set us up for getting to Snoqualalemie Pass tomorrow night for showers, dinner, and laundry. It is going to be very fun.
Oh and other fantastic news, Stealthy found out today that she passed the RICA test she took right before hitting the trail. It is an entrance test for getting an elementary credential.
Tonight we are perched on a ridge with an amazing view and the promise of a wonderful sunrise.
