The weather she's a changin'. Rain is forecast for tomorrow and the next day, we'll be in town by morning. The fog fills the valleys, below us this morning and we're camped in it tonight.
More of the same for most of the day - second and third growth forests, with an extra effort in one section. I can't imagine the number of work-hours that went into creating thousands of these slash piles where they thinned the trees over hundreds of acres. Hard to believe it could be cost effective but what do I know.
We did pass by the pretty Mirror Lake in the afternoon. There were epic numbers of huckleberry along the trail which were hard to walk past (we didn't walk past them all). And frogs and fungi, very cool.
We are a mere 5 miles from Snoqualmie with the food and lodging that brings. It will be a short hiking day tomorrow with town chores and eating, lots of eating.
