Mileage: 13.5, 13.4, 17.6, 19.0, 22.4
We left White pass after enjoying the wonderful amenities at the Kracker Barrel! We charged all our stuff and picked up packages and ate some hot food, it was great! We had a nice time berry picking along the way and the best part of this section was that we reached our halfway point! Of course it wasn’t really the halfway of the trail but it was the point where we reached 1325 miles!
Walking over a cool board walk:
Sometimes I catch Derek dancing… Here is evidence. He didn’t know I was recording!
On our last day of this section it was very dry. It has been a warm dry summer in the Pacific NW which resulted in lots of dry streams. We kept passing dry water source after dry water source, so we were kind of forced into hiking a long day to make it all the way into Snoqualmie Pass that night. There we found a brewery and an awesome restaurant next door to it and ate to our hearts’ content. We stealth camped near a ski lift at the ski resort that night.
The next day, we picked up our packages in the morning, did laundry at the hotel, and were planning on heading out after that, but after I had a mini breakdown and mega shower envy we decided to stay in the hotel for a night before we kept going. It was a much needed rest!
