Total PCT Miles Hiked Today: 18.2
Mile 800 passed at suspension bridge over Woods Creek.
2nd day for Dionysus hiking with abdominal sprain (?). Pain is pretty intense, but he is managing it with good humor.
Regular feature of our day is daydreaming about food. We are fine with the rigors of long distance hiking. The really boring food on the trail, however, gets us to daydreaming about town stops. Yikes!
Beautiful hike down along the Rae Lakes by first light. At the end of the valley going down, we cross a fabulous bridge (later, thru-hikers were fishing here and then later roasted the fish at a fire ring nearby).
Incredible roaring creek on sheer rocks up long valley with aspens and signs of avalanche. Rooster tail of water.
|Napped on sponge sphagnum by alpine creek. Saw Dirty Brown, Anteater, Stride, Nancy, & others. Dirty Brown told us that our German artist friend, Tina, had left the PCT and returned to Germany. We were so sorry to hear that.|
