Hi everybody, I’m here at the Dinsmore’s Hiker Haven in Skykomish WA with only 187.2 miles to go, which given my pace recently I should be able to do in 6 days. Washington has been beautiful with Goat Rocks and Knifes Edge being the highlights so far. Haven’t had to much rain just some mist most mornings but even that’s been clearing off recently, and after recovering from the bout of giardia I dealt with for the southern few days of the state (was able to keep moving unimpeded by the best trail magic ever in the form of some antibiotics I received from another hiker) it has been some very enjoyable, although hilly, hiking. Kinda reminds me of the Appalachian Trail. I’m looking forward to the Glacier Peak area and the northern half of Washington which is supposed to be the most beautiful part of the state and can’t wait to get to Canada. Success is nigh, Onwards!
