My hike today will take me out of the Goat Rocks area and down to White Pass where I will resupply at a small market, and enjoy hot food, fresh juice, email/text family and friends, and even score a cold beer left in the hiker box!
Just as I was leaving the Goat Rocks, I spotted Mountain Goats!
The Weather forecast showed rain tonight and tomorrow. Oh well, this great weather can’t last forever…
I Left White Pass after lunch. Clouds started forming, thunder started, but as I arrived at my campsite, the thunder abated – maybe no rain after all?
Found a small flat camp spot nestled in trees near Pipe Lake.
After dinner, the thunder and lightening picked up again, so I prepared for a rainy night: empty pack under my legs/feet, everything but water bottles and shoes inside the tent.
it started raining after dark and did not let up until morning, but I was was warm and dry.
Thanks for reading!
