On Saturday, Alina and I teamed up again for my last section in Washington (she has one more stretch to do after this), leaving from Stevens Pass and heading towards Stehekin, where we planned to take a zero day and then we would be separating as she rode on to Rainy P...

With our new supplies Shyla and I continued north out of Chinook Pass on Tuesday, and once again I was reminded of how thankful I am for all the people who help to make a ride like this possible.  Besides getting the food and water we needed (and having Carol's generou...

I got to White Pass on Monday night, then rode north from there to Chinook Pass under the watchful presence of Mt. Rainier.  Unfortunately, when I got to Chinook, the food and water that I had cached there for Shyla was missing--the first time that had happened.  It de...

This is a view of the famous Knife's Edge, which runs right along the spine of the mountain ridge; if you look closely you can see a faint trail leading up along the bare rock surface in the middle of the picture.  Most of the trail itself was clear of snow, but there...

The difficult trail conditions continued, and now on top of that, we were getting rained on much of the day.  We had been burnt to a crisp with triple-digit heat the first two days, but now the heavens opened up and we were deluged with rain, in addition to battling wa...

After this experience on the PCT, I guess if things don't work out with grad school, I can always get a job as a lumberjack . . .

On our second night on the trail, we stayed near Deep Lake on our way to Stevens Pass.  After the catwalk area, the trail quickly turned difficult due to the constant clog of downed trees.  At times we were only able to make about a mile of progress an hour, as we had...
