WA PCT 2015

Sept. 22, 2015

We left camp by 6:10 with our headlamps on.  We are keeping a good pace, short breaks and just keep moving. We are into the hiking rhythm of a long distance hiker.The trail is either up or down, not much flat walking at all. Our hiker friends caught up to us by noon. This has become the usual pattern, we pass by their tents when they are asleep and then when we are taking a break here they come. The data book warned of a dry section so we loaded up with water at Camp May.  We felt the additional weight.  We started looking for camp and figured that we would have to dry camp.  As we were setting up our tent we heard the sound of water near by. Oh well, better to have carried the water than wishing we had water. A beautiful camp site tonight near Ward Pass. We have views in many directions. The moon is out and the stars are bright. It is going to be a cold night.
