Journey to the End Sept. 24 – 26 Mini monument at Rainy Pass. Created in 2018(I think) when fires forced the closure of the PCT to the northern terminus. The last few days were definitely cooler but for the most part we lucked out on rain and snow. 53 miles to go! Fall colors are starting to show as we move out of the rain forests. I was stung for the third time yesterday and this time there was some significant swelling. The larch’s showing off their fall colors. Hikers coming out of the woodwork at Hearts Pass. After Stehekin, it seemed like the hikers on the trail doubled. It wouldn’t be a proper goodbye if Washington didn’t give us one last rain and cloud walk. Fortunately, it cleared up around noon. First glimpse of the border. That’s a wrap! Manning Park, CA. These feet are officially off trail and ready for a good long rest.
