Good Morning! Yesterday was Sunday and nothing sh

Good Morning! Yesterday was Sunday and nothing short of perfect! The rain never materialized Saturday night and I slept well. On the trail at 5;00 needing my headlamp for the first 30 minutes. Unusual elevation profile day. Up “only 4400” feet but down over 7000 overall. Really beautiful with lots of glacial streams. At 2 pm I reached the mandatory detour at mile 2535. This is due to the still uncontrolled Wolverine Creek fire. The detour required taking the Suiattle River Trail for 6.5 miles to a trailhead. That made a total of 27 miles for the day. But, at the trailhead was a woman named Monique with a trunkful of magic! She gave me pasta salad and chips. Also there were two hikers with a car. They offered me a ride to a motel where I am now. Today I will get to Chelan, then Stehekin where I have my final resupply box. Only 89 miles to Canada but I don’t think I’ll be back on the trail before Wednesday. A rest is needed. I’m not the profile demographic of the trail. Most people are male and in their 20’s. This bird needs a spa day! Hope you are enjoying my journey.
