Aug. 29th: CS2192.6 to Trout Lake Creek (2192.6 to 2221.3)
Daily miles: 28.7
Walked through the great Pacific Northwest Huckleberry Highway today and got stained teeth to show for it. Stopped so often to eat the fruit off the bushes that I have no idea how I walked nearly 30 miles. Natural energy I guess. I got a few good glimpses of Mt. Adams, including one from a lonely forest service road at dusk that made me feel like I was in some rural forgotten place. Quiet roads in the woods will do that, and this particular one leads nowhere at all.
One thought on “Gifford-Pinchot Forest”
Re: “natural energy” from huckleberries…..hard to believe energy can be provided by something other than ice cream, cinnamon rolls, root beer floats, & peanut m&m’s, isn’t it?
Great job on the trip, & sharing your journey w the rest of us. Thank you!
