Cross That Bridge When You Come To It

To get into Washington from Oregon, on trail, you must walk across The Bridge of the Gods. The Bridge of The Gods is 141 feet up from the water, 1/3 of a mile long and it opened for use in 1926. According to Wikipedia. What they don’t tell you is…: There are only two lanes […]

The Current Finish Line

Hiked out of Timberline in the late afternoon on Sunday. It was cold and wet. Although not as bad as the storm which came through Friday night which lasted until near morning. Lightning, thunder, heavy rain. While hiking on, I tried to find the same spot I set up camp two years ago, but to […]

Déjà vu

Here I am, again, at Timberline Lodge. This time I should be able to hike to Cascade Locks. Currently there are no fires blocking my way, like there was in 2017. This place is as awesome as it was 2 years ago. I’ve already had their breakfast buffet which is talked about up and down […]

Lava Fields and Burnt Forest

Remember my last post about the camp spot I had? Well, one thing I didn’t write about is about 8:30pm that night I heard a loud sound and a rushing. I peeked my head out and the cute little stream that wasn’t flowing, and only had a tiny pool of water, started running and running […]

Super Quick Update…

Everything is going great, now that I’m at a bit lower altitude. I have a bit of signal where I’m at so I thought I’d share my camp spot from last night. Camping under mountains Woke up this morning with frost on the outside fly of my tent. When the sun rose, it melted the […]

Scenic Views and Ice Rocks

August 1st started out as one hot day.  There was a heat warning in effect, and the temperature rose to 103.  Ran into some hikers I met before the Sierras at a water source.  Always fun to catch up with others and see how their hike is going.  The views during the day were pretty […]

Hiker Bridges and Sunsets

It took a bit longer than I wanted to cook breakfast this morning, but it was delicious.  I made a scramble out of the eggs, potatoes, and sausage I got from the day before.  I munched on the cherries and had coffee while patiently cooking my meal.  After such a great start to the day […]

90 Day Trial & A Bear!

It was a six mile hike downhill to Belden.  I have an easier time hiking downhill and move pretty fast so it didn’t take too long to get there.  I arrived at 11am, just in time to order a huge breakfast.  It didn’t come out of the kitchen right away, but it gave me time […]

Obstacle Course

Truckee was an easy bus ride. I was in contact with another hiker, Lego, who was close to the area, so when I arrived in Truckee we met up so we could all hike together. Even though I skipped past the main part of the Sierras it’s still safer to not hike alone up here. […]
