Friday, Happy Birthday to my sister, Judy!! . I was too tired to write last night and still haven’t had a cell signal since leaving Stevens Pass at 12:15 on Thursday. Yesterday was great! About 5800 feet of climbing and hiked 21.5 miles. Met Big Dave who when he reaches Canada he will have completed all of Oregon and Washington in sections. Shortly after meeting Dave at a creek I went ahead. In the bushes eating blueberries I saw a bear! He took off after I started him. So, no picture. When I left camp yesterday morning it was cold and lots of dew. Wore gloves and my puffy for an hour and a half before stripping down to my normal minimalist attire. The wet grasses and bushes were like a car wash for my legs. Who says hikers don’t bathe! I camped at 5700 ft elevation at Reflection Lake. More of a mud hole than a lake. Hard hiking but satisfying.
