The tree walking was broken up with some great views of Mt Hood, Mt Adams and Mt St Helens.
I met a new to me nobo hiker, Twinkle Toes, from Fresno. I also stopped and chatted with BloodyMary, from San Jose and hiking south. Her blog is sobohobo.com
I am camped with Ninja Turtle tonight. 10 miles to the road to Trout Lake.
hi Nancy – I hiked with Tahoe Mike in 2009 and I know he mentioned hiking with some women for his Oregon section and I wondered if it was you. I have been following your journal and reliving my own hike which I completed in 2012, sections I had to finish that I road walked in 2008 due to fire closures. Anyway, you will be finishing pretty early so best of luck. I am contemplating doing a thru hike next year – just because I love the trail too. Wondering what shoes you are using – I see them in all your pictures. I have running shoes that I will hopefully use but wondering what you have – they always look in such good shape. Best of luck on the rest of your hike. I have been hiking the trail again thru you. I was able to hike with Blue Butterfly this year from Warner Springs to Aqua Dulce and just loved it. Guardian Angel
