Day 84, 8/18, Glacier Peak View, M-2503, 30mi

The weather was all over the place today. From cold fog to warm sun. It never really rained but we got a bit wet from hiking through the clouds at the end of the day.

Sunrise from camp.

The clouds rolling in…

and unfortunately, obscuring our views.

Lots of marmots and pikas (no pics) playing in the rocks. Can you find the two marmots?

Glacier Peak peeking out of the clouds.

DV about to get eaten by a giant boulder.

We had a relaxing lunch break at Sally Anne Lake.

Here I am hiking into the mist.
The clouds lifted with incredible views of the green valley below.

Then we were back in the clouds for the rest of the day.

Some last remaining snowfields as we descended off the ridge toward camp.

Hopefully, the clouds will lift by morning because we are basically staring at Glacier Peak but see nothing.

There was a fair amount of climbing today… ~6500′ most of it was well graded which made it manageable. Tomorrow will be about 9000′ of climbing…we’ll see how it goes 🙂
