Seiad Valley In and out
1669.2 total miles
6188 ft up/5742 ft down
I started walking at 5:30am. Mostly downhill and I was sweating immediately.
Lots of hikers I had met before were in Seiad Valley when I got there. Tarzan, Emma, Betsy, Nature and Legs. New hikers today were Johnny Rocket, Nobody’s Friend, Tartan, Marathon and Fat Dog (he is the race director for a 120 mile run in Vancouver). Also Maniac, REI, Beacon, Free Range and Dark Horse that I have been seeing the last few days.
I ate, showered, washed my clothes (and put them right back on wet) and tried to stay cool until 5. Then I started the long climb.
Great spot for a break at Lookout Spring……
I’m now camped on a saddle with a beautiful view. Dark Horse is here. The sunset was spectacular. We should be able to see the sunrise in the morning….. if I can wake up. It’s almost 10. Maybe the coffee milkshake at 3 wasn’t such a great idea….. I’m wide awake.
