Glacier Peak Wilderness - Day 11
When we woke up, we were happy we only had a few more miles to go. It still took until the afternoon before we reached the parking lot. We had planned our hike so that we could either stop there or add another two days and thereby make a full loop back to where we had started 9 days earlier. Those extra two days would involve climbing two enormous mountains and crossing a river were the bridge had recently been swept away. Due to our previous detour and losing the trail on day one we also only had enough food left for another ~1.5 days. Therefore, we decided to end our hike at the parking lot and consider doing some shorter hikes later in the vacation.
