Glacier Peak Wilderness

PCT 2018 Day 103, August 3, Friday Start mile 2474.4, campsite

End mile 2502.2

Miles walked: 27.8

After raining the previous night, today is foggy, in clouds, sometimes with a fine mist rain. Midday the fog lifts and sun peeps through, but soon the fog returns. The day is cold, refreshing for hiking, and no mosquitos are about. With so much fog, photos are not so good today. At the end of the day I am climbing the side of a steep ridge, up to elevation 6.5k, in white-out conditions, racing to get down to 5.5k where it will not be such a cold night, and lose the light before reaching my planned campsite.
