Daily miles: 25.7
Colder days, earlier nights, clouds like you’d expect. Washington for sure. Rainier covered in grey, Mt. Adams right above me. Walking the slopes of another solitary mountain. Huge glaciers and milky snowmelt streams. People everywhere and meadows to rule them all. Tuck myself in somewhere in the forest at a tiny spot and go searching for berries. Fill my cup and tilt the glass so that ripe huckleberries stuff my mouth. Chew, swallow, repeat.
