We did it!  Today we finished our ride to Canada, arriving at the monument and then going on to Manning Park.  It was a tough last section as we seemed to enter a winter wonderland as we neared the border, and it feels as if I am getting done just in time, as the weath...

Once again, we started the day with very cold weather, but at least most of the trail was free of snow. However, looking ahead it was clear that we were riding into higher elevations where there was already an accumulation of white on the mountain peaks.

This was also a...

As I left Rainy Pass this morning and headed into my last section of trail to the monument at the border, I felt sorry for all the hikers who had missed the chili dogs the night before.  And I was also sorry for the weather that they were hiking into--and that I was al...

After taking a zero to rest in Stehekin (and since it rained all day, it was a good day not to be on the trail!), we had an easy short ride into Rainy Pass today, our last road crossing before Canada.  There I was the lucky recipient of a whole lot of the trail magic t...

We got on the trail super early (before 7am) after camping near the Suattle river.  I wanted to do my 27 miles into Stehekin in good time in order to try to arrive before dark.  We had arranged with Cragg Courtney (of the famous Stehekin bakery) to leave some hay for S...

Somehow, we got through our day yesterday relatively unscathed, but unfortunately we were in for even worse today.  The weather turned very cold overnight again, and since I had "cowboy camped" without my tent, I woke up to a coating of frost on my sleeping bag.  When...

Today started out well, with some really beautiful scenery, but then it turned really hellish later in the day.  After a smooth day's progress yesterday, I woke up optimistic that I might avoid some of the terrible downed trees that made my ride through this section in...

Today marks the beginning of the end--the end of my ride, that is.  Once more, I parked at Stevens Pass, where both vehicles are now waiting for when my mom comes to pick up one of them in order to help me trailer Shyla back from Canada.  Then I headed north, riding to...

Today ended with one of the most famous and spectacular sections of the PCT, the Kendall Katwalk, just before we reached Snoqualamie Pass. (And yes, that's a thin thread of trail that you see blasted into the side of the sheer granite cliff!)

But before we got there, we...

Finally!  The sun came out again today after no sunny days since the September 1st; it was really warm and lovely all day long.  We had a 31 mile day today, so it was nice not to be cold and shivering as well.  We were headed to Lemah meadow, and around 8pm, with still...
