Aug 23: near Deep Lake to Mig Lake (PCT miles 2435.2 to 2457.1)

I woke up feeling much stronger than yesterday.  Today’s goal is to get close to Steven’s Pass.  I’ve got three big climbs and descents to get to a campsite at Mig Lake.

I passed a wide stream that had nicely places rocks to provide a dry crossing.  One rock was loose however, so I started the morning with one wet foot.

All the ridge climbing and descending today provided great views:

I arrived at a nice lake for lunch

and was joined by a Pine Sawyer Beetle

I arrived at Mig Lake and grabbed the last campsite available – it seems this lake, just seven miles from Stevens Pass (Hwy 2) is a popular destination.

Luckily the crowd at the lake turned quiet at sunset and so I slept very well.

Thanks for reading!
