I felt very sluggish this morning. No big surprise after yesterday. When I got to the Suiattle River bridge I sat down and made a mocha. Cold. It tasted great. Hot is nice but not worth the hassle. This bridge is new since 2009. Then I had to cross the river on a downed tree. The bridge adds 5 miles of trail but made for a much less nerve wracking crossing.
The climbs today were much easier than yesterday. Much of the hiking was in the trees. I found some chanterelles and puffballs. But no way to fry them so I left them behind. At the top we were rewarded with great views.
Once we were in the trees again we walked by many huge old cedars.
Kimchi, Atlas and I are camped 9.5 miles from the bus to Stehekin.
