PNT DAY 27. THE KETTLE CREST TRAIL. August 4, 2019.

22.7 miles
4981ft elevation gain
3051ft elevation loss
PNT Mile 454

All the road walking of the last 2 days was to get us to the Kettle Crest National Recreation Trail. It’s a well known trail in Washington and extends for over 40 miles. It starts at this campground and runs south, crosses Highway 20 and continues for about 10 more miles. Unfortunately half of it burned so we walked thru more old burn areas. The views were expansive but dimmed somewhat by smoke or haze.

There were many springs along the way. Some were improved for the benefit of humans and cattle. We saw lots of cattle poop but no cows.

The 1200 ft climb up Cooper Butte
was the last challenge of the day.
