PCT Trail Angel Hike North Past Gillette Lake

Hike Distance: 8.3 miles      Yearly Hike Distance: 1061.7 miles

Elevation Gain: 1377 feet      Yearly Elevation Gain: 112293 feet

Cooler temps and less smog, from the wildfires in BC, made for a nice day of hiking and providing trail magic on the PCT north of Bridge of the Gods near Gillette Lake, in WA! We met so many fantastic Thru and Section hikers. In order, we met:

1) SOBO Section hiker “Winky”
2) NOBO Thru-hikers “Boomerang & Crikey”
3) SOBO Thru-hiker “Hurl Goat” originally from Mexico
4) NOBO Thru-hikers “Carebear & Oreo” from Israel
5) NOBO Section hiker “Sparkles”
6) NOBO Section hiker “Bilbo”
7) NOBO Thru-hiker “Jupiter” from New Zealand
8) NOBO Thru-hiker “Mountain Rabbit” from Austria – He is the only hiker we’ve met, this year, that has completed the entire trail up to where we met, including the Sierra’s!
9) NOBO Thru-hikers “Moho & Sateless” from Germany

So many wonderful people and we wished them a safe and fun journey!   I’ve also included some scenic pictures of this area of the PCT.
