Today was mostly good but it ended which such horrible mosquitos that it is difficult to remember the good parts.
I awoke before my alarm at the Summit Inn and got up to have a shower and pack everything. I also ate the breakfast I had bought the day before.
After this I checked out and headed back to the trail. The trail today had 2 big climbs and was generally more rocky and rough than what I have become used to.
After the first climb out of Snoqualmie Pass I hiked in a beautiful area with good views but very rugged trail.
Until about lunch the trail was like this and very beautiful. Sadly then it descended into forests and I only had occasional views. Still no mosquitos though. I actually had no mosquitos until about 1 hour before camp where I came upon some of the worst mosquitos I have experienced. This was late in the day but I pushed on a bit up a climb in hope of fewer mosquitos.
The camp I ended up in did have fewer mosquitos but still enough to make setting up camp and eating miserable.
Tomorrow I hope to reach Steven’s Pass and pickup my package while they are open. I am not sure when they close.
