Glacier Peak Wilderness - Day 3
In the morning we were glad our food was still there. Then it was time to really start our hike. At first, the trail was easy to follow and passed through some really old forests with redwood trees and occasional open spots where we could see the surrounding mountains. All the flora was turning into fall colors. We ended up in a long valley which we would follow all the way to its other end. The trail gradually became more difficult to follow and the forest thicker. In several areas we had to bushwhack our way through shrubs and plants. I don't think I have ever talked so much to Diane as that morning, as we were trying to make sure any bears would hear us approaching.
