Day 83, 8/17, Near Janus Lake, M-2474, 26mi

It was kind of an odd day. We hiked 15 miles without stopping because DV and I both had resupply boxes waiting at he Stevens Pass ski area and we excited for some food/drink at the grill. After a 3.5 hour break we did another 11 miles without stopping to our camp. Somehow we climbed 6500′ in the middle of all that. We hiked through both misty clouds and bright sunshine…a bit of everything today except rain 🙂

DV enjoying the view of one of the many alpine lake with the clouds rolling up the valley.

Washington has had a number of these signs in random places in the woods. Might have to check that out tomorrow.

The emerald color of these lakes is stunning.

We got to the Stevens Pass ski area just before noon.

This side route off the PCT ( to the lodge) is known as the Hamburger Trail.

We had a beautiful evening hike but were a bit jealous of this campsite several hours before we were ready to end our day.

Our site wasn’t so bad though 😉
